Amaretti with pistachio




Others ingredients

  • 1 egg white at room temperature
  • 50g powdered sugar
  • 110g almond powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • icing sugar to roll the biscuits in
  • a few whole pistachios for decoration


For a dozen Amaretti

  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 150° fan.

  2. 2

    Pour 35g of egg white into your salad bowl, add a nice pinch of salt and 50g of caster sugar.

  3. 3

    Whip the meringue by gradually increasing the speed of the robot. It should make a beautiful bird's beak.

  4. 4

    Then add 20g of pistachio paste and whisk very little, simply to obtain a homogeneous mixture.

  5. 5

    Pour 110g of almond powder over the meringue, and mix delicately with a spatula.

  6. 6

    Form balls of around 20g.

  7. 7

    Roll the amaretti in the icing sugar and place them on a perforated baking sheet covered with baking paper. Be sure to space them well.

  8. 8

    Optionally place a pistachio on top of each biscuit, pressing them in slightly.

  9. 9

    Bake for 12 minutes maximum (be careful, they must not brown!)

  10. 10

    Let them cool on a rack as soon as they come out of the oven!
