Off topic: Italian cake recipe
Thread poster: Christina Clark
Anyone out there who can help me with a recipe for Baci di Loano? A \"baci di loano\" is something close to two chocolate biscuits with chocolate crème in between. It’s a local specialty from the Ligure region and it’s called something different from city to city, e.g. Baci di Albenga, Baci di Loano etc. It has noting to do with Baci Di Dame, as this is a white and hard biscuit. Baci di Loano is a soft and absolutely delicious little mouthful!
I would be very grateful for a recipe!
Well, here where I live the Baci di Dama correspond to what you want -- not hard and white but soft, luscious and melt-in-your-mouth wonderful. The dark part is not chocolate at all but hazelnut!
Here is a recipe I found. Perhaps it will be a good replacement for your Loano ones.
Baci di dama
300 grams toasted hazelnuts, ground (in the blender, I guess!)
300 grams flour
200 grams sugar
200 grams butter
300 grams dark chocolate
Blend the softened butter with the hazelnuts, sugar and flour.
Form into little balls and place on a baking sheet: bake for about 10 minutes.
Melt the chocolate in a double-boiler and spread it between two cookies (sandwich style). Enjoy!

This sounds wonderful!
However, the biscuits I have in mind have added chocolate to the mixture before baking as well as chocolate in the middle. And I think they also contain a bit of rhum.
Here is a picture:
Here is a bit in Italian about my much sought after biscuits:
I baci di Alassio e di Albenga
I baci di Alassio sono minuscole palle di pasta di nocciole e cioccolato fondente tagliate a metà con uno straterello dello stesso fondente. I baci di Albenga invece, al posto del cioccolato, hanno una particolare aromatizzazione ai vini locali Pigato e Vermentino.
But thanks anyway!
