Where to buy Lazzaroni Amaretti Cookies in Toronto.

corrinnecareens Dec 6, 2012 08:53 PM

I have a chocolate concoction in mind but I need the original Lazzaroni Amaretti di Saronno Amaretti cookies to make it happen because they have a bitterness that is unmatched by other brands that I've come across at Portuguese bakery across my house.

I really do not want to travel all the way up to Woodbridge - at least not until a I have a massive craving for gelato.

    I did a google image search of the cookies to see if they look similar to a cookie now currently made at Alimento on King W. I think they may be very similar. They have a few flavours but the chocolate is fantastic IMO.

              Last year I bought them from the No Frills at Vic Park/Eglinton...go figure. There probably is no rhyme or reason as to which No Frills you may find them in as this area isn't predominately Italian. They were awesome though. I bought them after Christmas and they were clearning them out for $2/box.

                the best thing to do with these is to roll the paper into a little tube, stand it up on a saucer, light the top afire, and watch it float in the air like a tiny flaming balloon.
