Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 1

275 Gram(s) Blanched almonds, 9oz
125 Gram(s) Soft dark brown sugar, 4oz
1 Egg white
Caster sugar for coating
Pound and grind the almonds in a pestle and mortar, until they become
an oily mass. Alternatively, grind the almonds in a food processor, or
chop, then grind in batches in a blender until oily. Turn the ground
nuts into a bowl, add the brown sugar and knead thoroughly, until the
mixture is very smooth and soft. Add the egg white as you do this to
help the mixture stick together. Divide the almond mixture into 4-6
portions and roll each into a ball. Lightly coat the balls with caster
sugar, and roll each one out thinly, into a round. Place on a piece
of muslin or a clean tea towel and leave to dry for 6-8 hours. Wrap
the pieces of sweetmeat individually in greaseproof paper and store
for up to 2 weeks in an airtight container. Requires drying time.
