Chef's Note

Feel like a kiss? You'll certainly be tempted by these Baci di Dama, an Italian specialty from Piedmont, shared with us by Casa Azzurra, distributor of Parmigiano Reggiano and Mascarpone. 

For 6 servings or 40 cheese kisses

- 80 g butter
- 100 g flour
- 100 g almonds, peeled and finely chopped
- 1 pinch of salt
- 20 ml / 4 tsp. white wine
- 80 g Mascarpone

 Recipe in 5 steps:

Savory Cheese Kisses 1

Place the almonds, parmesan, salt and flour into a bowl or a food processor container.

Savory Cheese Kisses 2

Add the cold cubed butter and white wine.

Mix well to form a smooth dough. 

Savory Cheese Kisses 3

Divide the dough into 8 to10 g pieces. 

Form into balls by rolling each piece in the palm of your hands. 

You should have about 40 balls.

Place the balls on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

Space them 3-4 cm apart, allowing room for expansion when they bake. 

Bake in a preheated 180° C / 350° F oven for 20 minutes.

Remove from the oven and let cool.

Meanwhile, soften the mascarpone and transfer it to a piping bag fitted with a large plain tip.

Take one biscuit and pipe a little mascarpone on the flat side.

Top with another biscuit, flat side down on the mascarpone, to form a kiss.

Continue with the remaining ingredients.

Serve immediately or store in the fridge in a covered container.
