Did you know that Italian biscuits are also really popular and delicious?
If you thought that Italy is only about its great savoury foods and its renowned world-class chocolates, you might make the same mistake that I made a couple of years ago. There is much more to Italy than just these mentioned things. You might want to get to know Italian biscuits, not only for their amazing flavour but also for their beautiful luxury biscuit tins. After this article, you will start looking for your favourite biscuit.
What makes Italian biscuits so different?
This is a question that many people are asking. What makes Italian biscuits so different? I know why I like biscuits, but what is the one thing that is making these cookies so different from the rest of the world’s?
The one thing is tradition. There is always some tradition added to true Italian biscuits. Traditions on how to make them, and the ingredients that they are using. This is why you will only taste real Italian cookies in Italy.
Some of the best Italian biscuits
There are so many different Italian biscuits, even I find it hard to know all of them. I have my favourite ones, of course, and I am sure that you know and love some Italian biscuits as well. But what are the top Italian biscuits that you should try when you are visiting Italy? You might have missed them the first time visiting, or this might be your first trip to sunny Italy. These are some of the top Italian cookies that you should try. Especially, if this is the first time that you are visiting Italy.
- Almond biscuits (Amaretti)
- Savoiardi (Ladyfingers)
- Italian Shortbread
You might find some of these names familiar. Some of these you can probably purchase it in your country. However, the difference lays in the different recipes and ingredients that are being used. Even imported biscuits cannot hold the comparison to the original, Italian versions. So, even if these biscuit names sound familiar, this might not be the traditional-made Italian versions.
Italian biscuits that most people don’t know about
Biscotti and Amaretti. They are familiar Italian cookies that everyone knows about. But did you know that there are some cookies that are really delicious that you might not know about? Cookies that are unfamiliar to people outside of Italy? And sometimes, so specific to individual regions that they are unfamiliar to other Italians as well. These are some of the names of unfamiliar Italian biscuits you should try. I tried some and was surprised about how great they taste.

Finding the best recipe to make at home
You have followed my advice, and tasted some of the best cookies while you were in Italy. Now, you want to make them at home. Where do you find the best-tasting recipe? The secret to making real Italian cookies is to get the recipe from an Italian. This is the only way that you can have the best-tasting cookies at home.
Just as delicious as other Italian sweets and chocolates. And you should definitely make time to try them yourself. However, the one thing that you should remember is that if you want to try true Italian cookies, you should eat them in Italy where they are made by true Italians.
