Milan, 2007. My husband and I visit the Christmas market in town and he discovers a booth selling almond paste cookies--not as sweet as marzipan--1-inch ovals, barely colored, soft, white, and tasting of almonds...unless they were the variety flavored with orange, or pistachio, or lemon, etc. For the past nine years, every Holiday, this is all he can think about.
I have looked everywhere for this recipe to no avail. The closest I've come are Sienese Riccarelli...but they're not quite it.
Anyone's Nonna have a recipe like this?
