a post from Baking Bites. They intrigued me, so I did some research on them. I read that the name means 'lady's kisses' so these seem like an appropriate cookie to write about today, Valentine's Day.
In spite of neither of us much liking the texture, we couldn't seem to stop popping them in our mouths. It was like we were convinced the next one would taste better.
After 2-3 days, we were avoiding the cookies and trying to pawn them off on each other. When I say I'm not hungry for dessert, I usually really mean I just don't want dessert because what we have is... yucky. All the cookies were finally eaten, but it took nearly 2 weeks. That's a long time for homemade cookies to last in this house!
I would try Baci di Dama again, maybe research more recipes and try one a little different. I'm almost certain we must have done something wrong, like mixed the dough too much or baked them too long. Maybe try one of the recipes with a little lemon or orange zest, maybe zest would help keep the cookies moist? Maybe bake them for less time? A different nut? Cake flour instead of all purpose flour? They were an awful lot of work for something we ended up not enjoying all that much.
