- 1 lb sugar
- 1 ¾ lb almonds , finely chopped
- Italian “00” flour or all-purpose flour
Melt the sugar over a very low heat in a glass of water and, as soon as threads begin to form, add the almond paste and the soft flour (if possible of the “Maiorca” variety). Mixing continuously over a low heat, cook until the mixture comes away in one piece. Cool it, work it, and put into a mold of the desired shape and then color it if you want to produce fruit or other objects.
