These Amaretti biscuits are based on the traditional amaretto biscuit from Saronno in Lombardy, Italy and they taste just like the real thing.
The great thing about amaretti biscuits is that they’re gluten and dairy free, which makes them the perfect biscuit to make into a keto-friendly treat. Just replace the sugar with a keto friendly sweetener, and you end up with these keto amaretti biscuits.
