Our favorite gluten-free holiday cookies.
$19.00 – $29.00 per lb.
Our gluten-free biscotti are made with a special blend of wheat-free flours. They are crumbly and crunchy rather than hard, making them edible without the need to dunk them in coffee (not that we don’t enjoy dunking!).
The Ricciarelli is a traditional Tuscan wedding cookie that combines orange with almond flavors. Finely ground almonds and whipped egg whites form the base of this cookie. We add sweetened orange peel, fragrant orange zest and fresh almonds to provide a flavor that lingers lightly on one’s palate.
We use a special gluten-free cake flour to give this traditional and much loved cookie a softness with a touch of crunch. Lemon zest tempers the sweetness of the sugar (nothing tempers a grandma’s sweetness!).
Made of corn flour, then rolled with raspberry jam for a crispy and slightly sweet treat. One of our most popular gluten-free delights, this traditional Tuscan recipe is naturally gluten-free because the cookie is made with polenta rather than wheat.
Our gluten-free version of our popular sesame and lemon flavored Regina has a rich, buttery flavor and crunchy texture.
Amaretti are delicious, chewy almond macaroons made without flour. We use fresh almonds, almond and macaroon paste and almond extract to give our amaretti a full and complex almond flavor. Legend has it that a bishop from Milan paid a visit to the town of Saronno in Lombardy where a young couple presented him with some of their homemade almond macaroons. The bishop was so taken with the flavor of the cookies that he blessed the couple with a happy marriage and the cookies became a local favorite.
Christmas Tree Raspberry Linzer
Gluten-free flour and butter batter combines with fresh lemon peel for brightness and extracts of vanilla and almond for their mellowing qualities.
After a light dusting of confectioners sugar, we add a dollop of raspberry jelly for a festive, slightly tart treat that is traditional for special events such as birthdays, weddings and Christmas.
Every country has their own version of the wedding cookie. Our melt-in-your-mouth Wedding Cookies are unquestionably Italian with their lemon zest. But we’ve made the flavor more delicate by using fresh ground pecans rather than almonds in the shortbread.
When the cookies come out of the oven, we dust them with confectioners sugar making them as white as a bride’s dress and as light as her step towards her beloved.
Our gluten-free Cuccidati are tender butter cookies filled with figs, dates, raisins and chocolate chips. We love Cuccidati cookies so much that we made this gluten-free version so that everyone can enjoy them.
These cookies hail from Sicily where virtually every family has a fig tree in the backyard and winter evenings are spent by the fire enjoying seasonal dried fruits and nuts.
