I made these for my gluten-intolerant mum for mother's day yesterday. I could only find the hard ameretti biscuits and added 6 of them (rather than the 4 soft as recommended). They were absolutely delicious! Like the yummy frangipan in a bakewell tart, and I'm not gluten intolerant - highly recommended!
