  • 1/2 c. Icing sugar, sifted

  1. Makes: 30
  2. Cooking Time: 20 min
  3. Oven temperature: 160 C (325 F)
  4. Blend grnd almonds with icing sugar measured after sifting. Add in lightly beaten egg whites with lemon rind if used and almond essence. Mix to a hard dough with hands. Clean hands and rub with a little butter to prevent dough sticking while shaping. Break off small pcs 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.
  5. Bake in a moderately slow oven for 20 min, covering with brown paper if tops begin to brown. Sift 2 c. icing sugar into a bowl and dip warm Amigthalota into it. If you like, a little rose or possibly orange flower water may be brushed onto Amigthalota before dipping into icing sugar. Place on a wire rack to cold.
  6. 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 possibly two before using.
