With the Christmas season comes giftable snacks and one of those giftable snacks that caught my eye was the Trader Joe`s Amaretti Tradizionale Crispy Italian Amaretti Cookies. From the package they reminded me of a cookie I like to get at my local Italian bakery every once in a while. Of course it`s slightly different, but the flavor is dead on.
What I liked most was that these cookies are individually wrapped. They`re in a wax paper type wrapper which when removed, you`re left with a cookie which is wrapped in a sealed plastic wrapper. This is one of the greatest things because it`s portion controlled without me having to do really anything but grab a single package. The cookie is crisp and crunchy, but it`s not a break your tooth type of crunchy.
Flavor wise it`s got an upfront sweetness to it. They remind me of the `cherry macaroons` I get at my local Italian bakery (they`re like a slightly coconut/vanilla cookie that`s sweet that has a little dollop of cherry flavoring on top). Sometimes it`s sweet enough that one cookie is all I need to satisfy that sweet tooth. Or sometimes I can have a serving with a nice cup of tea/coffee. They are a cookie that I can enjoy straight out of the package, or dunked in a little bit of coffee to soften it up just a tad. They`re great and I quite enjoy them for a little treat here and there.
A serving, 3 cookies, is 160 calories or 4 points plus values.
