Baci Di Dama ( Orange Almond Cookies )

1 cup ground blanched almonds

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup minced candied orange peel

1 cup all-purpose flour — sifted

6 tablespoons milk — up to 8

1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate pieces — melted

Put the ground almonds in a bowl with the sugar, orange peel and all

but 1 tbsp of the flour. Mix well, then stire in enough milk to give a

smooth, firm dough.

Roll into small balls and place, well apart, on a baking shet lined

with greased wax paper. Sprinkle with the remaining flour, and bake in a

preheated moderate oven 350 degrees, for 15 minutes or until golden


Transfer to a wire rack to cool. When cold, sandwich the cookies together

in pairs with the melted chocolate. Chill in the fridge for 1 hour before serving.

Makes 12-15
