Hello Phaedrus! Thanks for your impressive detective work. I am hoping you can help me
find a recipe to use to recreate a specialty made by Termini Brothers Bakery of Philadelphia.
They make a concoction consisting of half a banana placed on top of an amaretto cookie with
buttercream and raspberry preserves, the whole of which is dipped in dark chocolate. Much of
the process is obvious, but I cannot find a good recipe for the cookie base. I did find a
video on Facebook of them putting these together, but no recipe is available as far as I can
tell. Your help would be greatly appreciated, as 7 hours each way is too far to drive to go
Here's the FB video: Facebook
Thank you so much
Sorry, I had no success. I could not find a clue about how to make amaretti cookies that taste like Termini Brothers'.
Bakery recipes are problematic. Bakeries don't give out their recipes, and it's difficult to make copycat recipes for
them because they make them in large quantities using bulk ingredients. The chocolate and the raspberry preserves are
most likely food service products, not made in-house. There are lots of French buttercream recipes on the web.
The best advice I can give you is to go to Google and search, using - bakery amaretti cookies recipe - as your search
terms. When you find a likely recipe, try it. Trial and error is the only way that I know for you to attempt to
duplicate the Termini Brothers product.
I will post this for reader input. Maybe one of my readers can help with the cookies. Maybe someone has already gone
through this process or maybe someone knows of an amaretti cookies recipe that tastes to them like the Termini Brothers'
