Help Cooking Amaretti Cookies
Just thought I’d let you know that I came across your amaretti cookie recipe on another site, it did have the link that bought me to this site.
I have tried these cookies using the temperature that you stated, the only thing is that I found that they were slightly over cooked on the bottom.
Any suggestions for the next time.
Susanna’s Answer :
Thanks for stopping by and asking a question about the temperatures of cooking amaretti cookies.
Every oven is different so the first few times when you try a new recipe, helps you to understand how the things work.
As far as your amaretti cookies begin slightly over cooked on the base. An easy way round this by putting extra sheets of greaseproof paper on the trays. This helps to protect the cookies.
I have a very large oven and the temperature I use is about 160°C but I also put at least four sheets of grease proof paper on the trays.
If your cookies were a nice golden color on top and it was only the base that was slightly over done, then try leaving the oven temperature the same as the last time and add the extra sheets of paper.
If on the other hand you found that the amaretti cookies were slightly over cooked on the top as well then try slightly lowering the temperature, say about 10°C.
Your oven temperatures shouldn’t really go below the 160°C as this will result in that the cookies stay in the oven to long, taking forever to turn a golden color and this will result in that your cookies being slightly drier than they should be.
Try this and let me know how you get on the next time.
