Market Hall Bakery's Most Popular Cookie

Sinking your teeth into these chewy, sumptuous 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 (gluten free), 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. 

Please note: Freshly baked Ricciarellis are made-to-order. Because of this, your order will take one additional business day to process before shipment.

Delightful with good tea

I took Market Hall’s suggestion and ordered ricciarelli to enjoy with our Mariage Freres tea. It was a very good suggestion!


Pricy, but worth it - a real treat and indulgence! A nice gift to yourself, or someone you know who has impeccable taste and loves almond. Dont waste it on someone who is just as happy with an Oreo (my husband). These are phenomenal for someone with a taste for the best!

The best ricciarrelli outside of Siena

I take exception to the gent below who complained of no citrus. A true Sienese ricciarelli has NO citrus. These are pretty darn good, short of a trip to Italy. If they get a little hard (happens quickly) close them up with a piece of lettuce for an hour or so and they will soften up and be chewy again.

Pairs perfectly with...

Just had one of these but taking alternate bites with one of your delicious candied apricots whilst sipping Mariage Frères Earl Grey French Blue because...why not? Perfection.

Fresh, Soft

Real nice taste. I look forward to ordering again.
