Nutritional values

Would you like something sweet with your coffee? Then try this pastry - a variation of the Italian Amaretti. Instead of almonds as in the original, pistachios play the main role here: they contain particularly high levels of monounsaturated fatty acids, which have a positive effect on increased blood fat values.

Prepared with non-alcoholic amaretto or almond syrup, the small biscuits also taste good to children.
