Saronno, Italy

Since 1718, the Lazzaroni family has crafted amaretti cookies in Saronno, Italy according to their family's traditional recipe. Lazzaroni's legendary amaretti cookies, or Amaretti Di Saronno, are made from a mixture of sugar, apricot kernels, and egg whites. The results of Lazzaroni's traditional process are crisp, airy cookies with a distinctive bittersweet flavor that make them perfect with espresso, dessert wine, or aperitifs.

Chiostro di Saronno also specializes in panettone, the Italian Christmas cake made with candied fruit and sometimes nuts and chocolate. The name of the company translates to cloister of Saronno, for the home of the company in a former Franciscan cloister in the center of Saronno.
