The very top picture is the one I mean--
They look like macaroons (almond, not coconut) -- but how do they get that shell around them?!
Looks like she wets the dough and then rolls the dough in the chopped almonds. Mounds on whatever didn't stick. I think? Oh, and it seems like the cookie's name is Biscotti di Mandorla, but the almond roll is maybe a varient?
closest one I found was: http://www.lovesicily.com/blog/recipe...
I don't know what they're called but my hunch is that a long roll of almond paste is wrapped with a flaky dough maybe like a filo then cut and baked .MAYBE ???? any other guess?
