Ingredients

3 cups almonds
ground
½ cup powdered sugar
sifted
½ teaspoon lemon zest
grated, optional
2 drops almond extract
*
1 x cloves, whole
*
1 x powdered sugar
additional
*
1 x rosewater
or orange flower water (optional)
*
2 large egg whites

Directions

Makes: 30 Cooking time: 20 minutes Oven temperature: 160 cup (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.
