Amaretti biscuits are so delicious and go soo well with Zabaglione. They are a  great way to use up your left over egg whites from the Zabaglione. They are easy to make, with only a few ingredients,  egg whites, ground almonds and sugar and flavoured with vanilla and Amaretto. They are gluten-free too and delightfully chewy and crunchy!
