  1. Put the two flours, the salt and the cold butter in small pieces in the mixer and whisk well until the mixture is sandy in appearance.
  2. Transfer the mixture into a bowl, add the grated Parmesan and the white wine and knead quickly by hand (dough should not be heated); at this point make about 40 balls.
  3. Coat the baking pan with baking paper, arrange the balls and cook in the lower part of the oven preheated to 180 °C for 25 minutes.
  4. At the end let cool and in the meantime prepare the different fillings with which to garnish the kisses.
  5. Put the cream of flavored cheese in a sac-à-poche (pastry bag) or in the pastry syringe (one for taste), put a little on the flat side of the ball and add it to another ball by pressing a bit to make them stick together.

Here the recipe of the SWEET Baci di dama.
