I just made these cookies from the MSL site. I had seen the video and noticed almond paste was called for. I love jam cookies and love almond paste, so if I can combine them, I will. I used to make these, without the almond paste, and called them Ribbon Cookies. These are called Jamaretti Cookies. I'm not sure what I think of this name. Is it made up? It sounds like a jam band name. Jamaphonics. Actually, Jamafonx. Like maybe from Eugene.
Oh wait!! it's jam and amaretti combined! Okay, I get it now. Anyhoo, they are delicious.
