Almond Biscuits from Siphnos -- Amygdalota
1 lb. Shelled, blanched, and finely ground lb. Shelled, blanched, and finely ground Almonds
1 1/2 to 2 cups 1/2 and 2 cups Sugar
1/2 cup Water
1 -2 tablespoons -2 tablespoons Orange Flower Water
Confectioner's for sprinkling Sugar

In a large heavy pot, heat the ground almonds, sugar, water and orange flower water. Stir with a wooden spoon until the mixture no longer sticks to the bottom and sides of the pan, 5 to 8 minutes. Let cool slightly, then wetting your fingers with ornage flower water, take tablespoonfuls and shape the biscuits to form small pears about 1 1/2 inches high.

Sprinkle the biscuits with confectioners' sugar until they are completely covered.

Note: Keepr the mixture covered while you work because it dries out quickly.
