VRSAR HAZELNUT AMARETTI
1 kg hazelnuts
1 kg sugar
1 vanilla sugar
PREPARATION: Manually grind the hazelnuts (use a hand mill not a food processor). Mix the eggs and sugar by hand or in a mixer, and then slowly stir in the ground hazelnuts with a wooden spoon or hand. Place a sheet of baking paper on the baking tray, and shape small balls from the mixture. Preheat the oven to 170 °C. Bake the balls for about 15–20 minutes at 170–180 °C without ventilation. The amaretti should look like small light brown hemispheres, and should be soft inside.
The peculiarity of Vrsar amaretti is its main ingredient - hazelnut, whilst in other parts of the world amaretti are made out of almonds
