Amigthalota ( Almond Pears) Recipe

Recipe Ingredients

3 cup ground almonds
1/2 cup icing sugar, sifted
1/4 cup egg whites (1/4 c = 2 whites
1/2 tsp grated lemon rind, optional
2 drop almond essence
1 whole cloves
1 additional icing sugar
1 rose or orange flower water (optio, nal)

Recipe Preparation

Makes: 30 Cooking time: 20 minutes Oven temperature:
160 c (325 F)

Blend ground almonds with icing sugar measured after sifting. Add
lightly beaten egg whites with lemon rind if used and almond essence.
Mix to a firm dough with hands. Clean hands and rub with a little
butter to prevent dough sticking while shaping. Break off small
pieces of dough the size of a walnut and form into pear shapes.
Insert a whole clove in the top of each to resemble a stem and place
upright on a buttered and floured baking sheet.

Bake in a moderately slow oven for 20 minutes, covering with brown
paper if tops begin to brown.
Sift 2 cups icing sugar into a bowl and dip hot Amigthalota into it.
If desired, a little rose or orange flower water may be brushed onto
Amigthalota before dipping into icing sugar. Place on a wire rack to
cool.

Sift remaining sugar from bowl into base of a container and arrange
cooled Almond Pears upright in a single layer. Sift more sugar
thickly over tops and sides, seal and store for a day or two before
using.
