Have You Tried These?

Oh you must~:)

Oh they are absolutely delicious little tender delicacies..I am enamored with them..

It's no secret I like Amarettis..I made some..
And there is a delicious carrot cake made with the ones I am used to..
But these are Fairy Fairy Fairy good..

And the tin could not be any prettier~
My friend Jain sent these to me and they are my new addiction..
The fairies have something to do with it as you know my love of Fairies..but in essence..the cookie is also the star..

Thank you Jain..they are sinfully delicious..Amorettis.
That's Amore~♥

If ANYONE reading has the recipe for soft amorettis..w/ hints of candied peel..so that they taste just like these..please let me know:)
The fairieswould be very pleased.


  1. Shoehorning into my pants has become an integral part of my life since I started coming here.

    And while the amaretti looks fairy good, I would almost hate to tear into the pretty packaging to get to them.
    But I promise to be gentle.

  2. I love Amaretta. I use it in bicotti. Yummmm!!
    Love your post.

  4. Here in Italy we call them "amaretti" they're deliciuos..even to prepare cakes.... (somewhere I got the recipe)

    Frfom totay on my blog I will translate my recipes in English.... now I even start to translate the past recipes.
    Have a nice day...xoxoxox ciao Flavia

  5. Ditto ~ Pam. Now you have made me fell like making fairies again. so pretty!

  6. Hi Monique,
    I haven't had the cookies for years. Your photos are a dream and really have that magical feel. I will have to ask my husband to make some for me over the holidays. Carrot cake sounds delicious too. Have a happy week, just love the fairies and the light feeling they put in my heart!

  7. I have not tried them and haven't ever seen them in stores but they are perfectly 'Monique' in every way!

  8. The wrappers surrounding these are out of this world. Just displaying them would be a delight alone!

  9. Have I tried them? Of Course!!! Don't forget to burn the wrapper and make a wish!


  10. Such a magical post...you made me smile on this rainy dreary yucky day!

  11. As usual...magical! I adore your writing style...cooking style, photography style, I could go on and on.

  12. Bonjour Monique ~ if they are Fairy good then I must try them.beautiful post.
    have a lovely week.

  13. yay, we are in fairy land :)

  14. I have not tried them but my goodness! The packaging is to die for, I am sure the treat inside does not disappoint!!!
    Now I have a bit of a sweet tooth!

  15. It's been years since I've had one of these. Perhaps I need to go shopping. ;-)
    Beautiful tin and such a sweet gift from Jain. ~ Sarah

  16. J'en ramène à chaque fois que je vais faire mon marché en Italie ... Cela dit, c'est vrai que ce n'est pas très dur de les faire mais j'aime tellement les avoir joliment emballés, à la mode italienne ... Vraiment délicieux, et tu as su les mettre merveilleusement en valeur dans tes photos ...
    Bises et bonne journée

  17. Hum, vous m'en donnez l'eau à la bouche... Et comment résister devant une telle petite fée ???

  18. Ils sont vraiment..parfaits..

    I hope you do find them.. and yes the tin is so special..It will store treasures:)
    My recipe makes hard ones..I wonder if the addition of the tiny confits fruits make these moister?

  19. Oh, these look like a treat for the eyes and for the palate. How beautiful and of course I too am a fairy lover. If you get the recipe, I would love it! What a sweet friend to send them. Yum, I would like one for breakfast right now.

  20. What a treat, where can we got these? I love the tin also.

  21. LOVe your fairies Monique and yes true...they look so delicately inviting!

  22. LOVE the Flower Fairies! Beautiful tin~ Enjoy your cookies :-)

  23. Monique, these are just so pretty! I love the candy wrapped packaging. Are these available in the US? I would love to hunt for them when I go next week!

  24. My friend Jain told me she bought them at Home Goods in the USA..Hope you find them!

  25. There is nothing prettier than Italian sweets at Christmas time.

  26. These look just perfect..and the fairies...just so Monique!
    Have a blessed week.

  27. Amoretti cookies are soooo good and having each one wrapped like a present makes me savor it even more. How thoughtful of Jain to send the perfect gift to you.

    I'll be on the lookout for a recipe :-)
