Amaretti are a classic Italian cookie. They are made with finely ground
almonds and a very small amount of flour. Amaretti are enjoyed not
only as a sweet treat but as an ingredient in many Italian recipes.
Cantuccini are miniature biscotti that come from Prato, near Florence, Italy.
They are also referred to as biscottini di Prato. Cantuccini are firmer and crisper than
regular biscotti. They are commonly used for dipping in Vin Santo, a sweet dessert wine.
Lace cookies are made from a dropped batter that spreads and separates as it
bakes into lacy, brittle, see-through wafers.
