Almond Kisses

Makes 20 kisses

  • 250 grs of sugar ;
  • 125 grs of almonds ;
  • 6 egg yolks ;
  • 1 egg white


Peel the almonds and crush them until they are reduced to a paste.
Cover the sugar with water, stir in order to dissolve it and boil for a few minutes until it forms a slightly thick, unbroken string when dripped from a spoon.
Add the almonds, stir on a moderate flame until the mixture is smooth and then take off the stove.
When it is lukewarm, fold in the egg yolks previously beaten together with the wine. Put it on a low flame once again, stirring constantly until the mixture becomes dry.
Take it off the stove again and, when lukewarm, mould little balls with your fingers greased with melted butter. Place the balls in a buttered shallow pan, and bake in a hot oven until they become slightly brown.
When they cool off, place them in fluted paper forms.
