This Piedmontese delicacy that also known as _kiss of a ladyÔ, from Cookies Con Amore, Baci di Dama delivers by sandwiching fine Belgian chocolate between two hazelnut shortbread cookies. The Piedmont is famous for its hazelnuts; you are likely to find a hazelnut tree in each familyÄs backyard in this part of Italy. We ground fresh hazelnuts into our shortbread batter making a course, nutty and buttery foundation for the chocolate. If you like Nutella, youÄll love this cookie. This delicasy consist of two small hazelnut cookies sandwiched together with a dollop of dark chocolate. They are given that name because they resemble a womanÄs lips preparing to give or receive a kiss. These two-bite cookies are eaten all over Italy and in some areas the hazelnuts are substituted for almonds or a mix of almonds and hazelnuts.
