4. Remove from the heat and allow to cool a little; process in batches in the blender until smooth; return to the saucepan.

6. Taste, adding a little more salt if necessary. Add the remaining butter and stir until it has melted.

7. Ladle the soup into heated soup bowls and sprinkle the coarsely crushed Amaretti on top. Serve at once.
