    Demelza's Note:

    I found this recipe in the RouxBe Test Kitchen while I was doing a product review. It was posted by Kimberley S. The recipe sounded great, so I made sure to copy it. I have not tried it yet, but do intend to. She used skin on almonds & blanched them, but did say you could also leave the skins on. I would just go with blanched almonds to save some time & work. I can see using a variety of nuts in this recipe. One person had commented that they cut the white sugar down to 2 Tbsp and used maple sugar as well.
