2 cups of sugar 3/4 cup of cold water 1/2 pound of blanched almonds * drops of vanilla or bitter almonds (to taste)
Boil sugar and cold water until it thickens. Set away to cool for half and hour, and then add a half pound of blanched almonds broken into small pieces, and a few drops of either vanilla or bitter almonds, according to taste. Stir with a wooden spoon until it creams; place on a marble slab or a large dish and knead a few minutes as 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.
