  • 🌰 6 cups almonds
  • 🍬 0.5 cup sugar

  • 🍋 1 lemon zest

🍳 Cookware

📝 Instructions

Step 1

In a 300°F oven, toast blanched and peeled almonds for 10 minutes.

Step 2

In a food processor or high-powered blender, process almonds until they reach the consistency of coarse almond flour. In a sauce pot, combine 1/2 cup sugar and orange flower water. Heat over very low heat until the syrup becomes thick. Add the almond flour into the syrup, mixing to combine over heat for a couple minutes.

Step 3

Turn off heat and add lemon zest, mixing to combine.

Step 4

When cool enough to handle, roll dough into walnut-size balls with hands.

Step 5

Roll the balls in remaining sugar.

Step 6

Let almond balls dry completely and wrap in tissue paper, twirling the sides like candy wrappers.

Step 7

Keep in glass jars or another covered container.
