Turkish Delight

Top Review by mollypaul

Subbed crushed almonds for the pistachios (didn't have any) and reduced the orange extract to 3 teaspoons. Everything worked very well...the nuts were fine and the candy had a lovely, subtly orange flavor. The only thing that might be considered less than 100% positive is that the candy was extremely sticky in the pan (which was non stick) and very difficult to remove completely once it had cooled. I don't know if a spritz of cooking spray would be in order or not, but WILL be used the next time we make this.
