These look so simple and so good. Taken from Northern Nut Growers Association.
- Boil sugar and cold water until it thickens. Set aside to cool for 1/2 hour, then add 1/2 pound of blanched almonds broken into small pieces, and vanilla. Stir with a wooden spoon until it gets creamy; place on a marble slab or a large dish and knead a few minutes like you would bread; then mold into balls with your hands.
- To Blanch almonds:
- Shell them, immerse in boiling water and let stand five minutes; then dip in cold water and the skins can be easily removed.
The taste was good but I had a hard time getting the balls to hold together, this is really sticky to work with also. Thanks Sharon!..Kitten
