Today is National Amaretto Day!

Monday, April 19, 2010 Posted by Rita A

Amaretto is an Italian sweet almond-flavoured liqueur. It is made from a base of apricot or almond pits, or sometimes both (per Wikipedia). Many recipes are made with the distintive taste of Amaretto for a lovely rich almond flavor.

In honor of National Amaretto day, here are a few different types of recipes mostly for sweet treats.

From Italian Dessert Recipes - I found two incredible sounding recipes made with amaretto. Amaretto Cookies - looks yummy, and Chocolate Tarts both made with Amaretto.

From Bella Eats comes Almond Chocolate Chip Cookie Sandwiches with Amaretto Frosting. These are delectable cookie sandwiches.

For a richer dessert - My Gourmet Connection features a Creamy Amaretto Cheesecake. Oh my that sounds so delicious.

Finally from one of my favorite foodie sites, cdkitchen, has over 200 recipes made with amaretto. Here she compiled a nice list of recipes to try.

Enjoy your day!
