Ingredients

  • 1 lb blanched almonds
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 5 tablespoons fine semolina
  • 1 lb icing sugar 
  • 1 ½ cups orange flower water
  • butter
  • cloves

Directions

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. Stir this mixture to soft dough. If too stiff, add 1 to 2 tablespoons orange flower water.

Break off small pieces the size of a walnut and shape these into “pears”. At the end of each, insert 1 clove for the “stalk”. Arrange on a buttered and floured baking sheet and bake in an oven for 20 minutes.

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.
