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.
THE CHEF’ SUGGESTION
Baci di Dama are really tasty also with white chocolate or Nutella!
- 250g hazelnut flour/ almond flour
- 250g butter
- 250g wheat flour
- 250g sugar
- Dark chocolate
Knead butter with sugar, then add the flour and knead as you would do for a shortcrust pastry.
Let chill in the fridge. Shape the dough into hazelnut-size balls and transfer to a baking pan lined with parchment paper.
Bake at medium temperature for about twenty minutes.
When cooled, take two pieces and stick them together with a bit of melted dark chocolate in the middle. Repeat with the other pieces.
