Classic Crunchy Amaretti in a reproduction of an old company van tin with real moving wheels.

Since 1718, the Lazzaroni family has crafted amaretti cookies in Saronno, Italy according to their family's traditional recipe.

Chiostro di Saronno Musical truck Amaretti biscuits are light and airy cookies guaranteed to take you to Italy from the very first bite. With their intensely sweet apricot kernel flavor, each of these delicate cookies boasts richness and simplicity!

Amaretti cookies are small dome-shaped cookies characterized by the light texture, crunchy exterior, and soft interior. These scrumptious desserts originate from Saronno, Lombardy region of Italy. Named after the Italian “amaro,” meaning bitter in reference to the bitter almonds or apricot kernels they contain, amaretti cookies vary from soft to crispy. Soft amaretti, also known as Amaretti morbidi, and crunchy amaretti, known as Amaretti di Saronno, cookies are naturally gluten-free biscuits that mainly consist of almond flour, egg whites, and sugar.

An Italian family-owned brand established in 1927 in the beautiful city of Saronno, the birthplace of Amaretti biscuits. The brand produces some of the best Italian cookies and pastries made according to original recipes, using only the highest quality ingredients. 

Amaretti biscuits by Chiostro di Saronno are particularly great when paired with a cup of latte or cappuccino for a rich Italian breakfast. Traditionally, these airy delights are served with liqueur, dessert wines, and even desserts like ice cream, Tiramisu, Mascarpone, and more. A unique musical truck packaging makes these biscuits perfect for gifting as well as adding a distinctive decorative touch to the table for offering to the guests.
