Ricciarelli from Market Hall Bakery


As seen in the New York Times.

Sinking your teeth into these chewy, sumptous cookies is an experience like no other. Traditionally prepared at Christmas time in Siena, Ricciarelli date back to the days of the Renaissance. Market Hall Bakery's pastry chefs create these little jewels every morning. Made simply with natural almond paste, these sweet treats make a sublime ending to a meal with a glass of Vin Santo or a steaming cup of espresso.

You'll receive one dozen freshly-baked Ricciarelli with each order. Our extensive testing, (or tasting!), reveals that these cookies are best eaten within about 10 days. Gluten-free.

  1. A good try, but not worth the expense

    Posted by David Colden on 3rd Mar 2010

    When you buy true Ricciarelli in Siena or Florence, they must be consumed within a couple of days of baking. The outside should have a gentle crispness and the inside should have the soft consistency of marzipan. These cookies don't match the Cucina Italiana experience. Better to buy almond flour and make your own.

  2. the absolute best I have ever had in my life

    Dear Market Hall,

    Thank you for your quick delivery to my family in Seattle. My sister called and with much exuberance said, "Those cookies (the almond) are the absolute best I have ever had in my life." She is a real food snob, so there you go.

    Happy holidays,
