Baci di Dama

Baci di Dama are traditional Italian cookies, typical of the Piedmont region. They are simple to make, full of nutty deliciousness and very Italian! Enjoy

Ingredients: 

  • 100g almonds
  • 100g sugar
  • 100g vegan butter
  • 150g plain flour
  • 2 drops of vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • Vegan chocolate spread (such as Biona)

Method: 

  1. Grind/blend sugar and almonds until you get a powder.
  2. Mix all the ingredients together (except the chocolate) until the butter is evenly dispersed and the dough is smooth.
  3. Shape the dough into tiny balls and then place them on a baking tray covered with baking parchment.
  4. Bake the baci di dama in the oven for 30 minutes at 160°C.
  5. Let them cool in the fridge for an hour or more.
  6. When they have cooled, put a dollop of vegan chocolate on one of the balls and place another one at the top.
  7. Once filled, put in the fridge for at least half an hour and then enjoy!
