BACI DI DAMA


This article is also available in: Italian

Baci di dama are delicious biscuits originating in Piedmont, specifically in the city of Tortona where they were first made a century ago. The name means “lady’s kisses” because they look like two lips holding together a chocolate kiss.
DIFFICULTY easy

250g hazelnut flour/ almond flour

Knead butter with sugar, then add the flour and knead as you would do for a shortcrust pastry.
