    Italian Wedding Cookies —

    8 ounces almond paste
    1 1/2 cups butter
    1 cup white sugar
    4 large egg
    1 teaspoon almond extract
    2 cups all-purpose flour
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 (12 ounce) jar seedless raspberry jam
    1 (12 ounce) package semisweet chocolate morsel, melted
    food coloring (green, yellow and red)

    1) Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).
    2) In a large bowl break up the almond paste. Add the softened butter, sugar, eggs and almond extract. Beat batter until light and fluffy.
    3) Beat in the flour and the salt. Split the batter into thirds and add enough of the three different food colorings to each third to color the batter nicely.
    4) Spread the batters into three 9 x 13 and 1/4-inch deep aluminum baking pans. Be sure the batter is only about 1/8-inch thick or it will rise to high.
    5) Bake at 350°F (175°C) for 12 minutes.
    6) Cool. Remove baked and cooled cakes from pans and place on a cookie sheet or cutting board.
    7) Heat the jam and spread between the layers as you stack them.
    8) Spread the melted chocolate over the top layer and refrigerate. When stiff remove cookies from the refrigerator and let chocolate soften slightly before cutting into small rectangles.

    Not sure which ones you are referring to, but my favorite are

    Amaretti Cookies

    3 cups blanched slivered almonds
    1 1/2 cups white sugar
    3 egg whites
    1 teaspoon almond extract

    Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

    In a food processor, grind the almonds into a fine meal. Add the sugar and continue to process for another 15 seconds. Finally, add egg whites and almond extract, continue to process until a smooth dough forms around the blade.

    Using a teaspoon, place well rounded spoonfuls of dough onto prepared baking sheets. Cookies should be at least 1 1/2 inches apart. Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 30 minutes.

    Cookies should be golden. Allow cookies to cool completely on the paper before removing. Store in a dry place.
