DiCamillo Baking Co., Inc.
Offered in our plastic resealable economy packs.
Perhaps the most famous of all Italian biscotti and a perfect example of how broad the term "biscotti" really is. These light-as-a-feather, single-baked, intensely-almond macaroons are crisp, airy, gluten-free and perfect with creams, custards, gelato, ice cream or fresh fruit. Save the crumbs!: they are regarded as highly as the cookies themselves and make an excellent dessert topping. There is even a famous tortellini recipe that includes amaretti crumbs in the filling.
Romantic legends abound regarding Amaretti origins, but none prepare you for the elegant simplicity of this baked confection. Almost miraculously, they are made using only three ingredients: almonds, sugar, and egg-whites. They remain a timeless milestone in the canon of the Italian baker.

The Di Camillo Bakery is nationally recognized for providing some of the finest biscotti and Italian Cookies available. The 2019/2020 Di Camillo collection includes some of the most extensive and varied collections of award-winning Biscotti and Italian Cookies. Our Biscotti Di Vino wine cookies were the spark that ignited the explosion in the cookie aisles of America and helped launch the whole new Biscotti sensation. Introduced in 1979 to the gourmet stores of New York City they set in motion what The New York Times later christened “The Biscotti Decade.”
In addition to this iconic wine biscotti we have many of the classics of the Italian biscotti and cookie menu. Our Biscotti Di Prato, the almond-studded, twice-baked biscotti which has come to define the American concept of biscotti, was rated #1 in the definitive New York Times nationwide taste test. This classic is completely authentic and made without any added fat.
Our menu includes other classics such as: Biscotti Amaretti (crisp almond paste macaroons), Crumiri (Krumiri) corn meal butter cookies-- sometimes referred to as polenta cookies, Biscotti Regina (sesame seed coated cookies), Cucidati Bucellati (Sicilian fig-filled cookies), Pizzelle (pressed-waffle cookies), and Coconut Macaroons.
Nor does the Di Camillo Bakery menu stop with just the classics: we have added double-chocolate Biscotti di Prato, made with the classic formula but with cocoa and chocolate chips added. Also popular are our chocolate-dipped Biscotti Di Prato, and Chocolate-Enrobed Biscotti Di Prato. Further, our menu includes our Cherry Almond Butter Biscotti and our Lemon Butter Biscotti. Our Pasticcini di Burro, is a shortbread-like butter cookie with walnuts, and our Grocci di Cioccolato, has chocolate chips added to this butter walnut cookie. In addition, we have a large Butter Almond Biscotti, as well as a chocolate-decorated version.
