Description

Traditionally, baci di dama — a.k.a. "lady's kisses" cookies — are a hazelnut sandwich cookie filled with chocolate. Following suit, this twist on the original is made with nut flour, though it's savory rather than sweet. The almond flour dough contains Parmesan cheese and Vin Santo, a sweet dessert wine, while the filling is made from a mixture of pesto and cream cheese. Store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days and serve them cold or at room temperature.
