Almond Pears -- Amygthalota
1 lb. blanched Almonds
1 cup Sugar
5 tablespoons (Cream of wheat) Semolina
1 lb icing Sugar
1 1/2 cup Orange Flower Water
Mix the almonds with 2 tablespoons sugar and grind them fine. Or use commercially ground almonds. Add remaining sugar, semolina, and 6 tablespoons orange flower water. Knead this mixture to a soft dough. If too stiff add 1 or 2 tablespoons orange flower water. Break off small pieces, the size of a walnut and shape into pears. At the end of each, insert 1 clove for the stalk. Arrange on a buttered and floured baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes in a slow oven. When the almond pears are cool, dip them quickly into orange flower water and then coat with icing sugar. After a few minutes coat them again in icing sugar.

I would like to receive updates and special offers from GreekCuisine and affiliates.
