  • 250 grs of almonds ;
  • fios de ovos (an egg yolk sweet) to taste ;
  • Malabar gourd preserve to taste ;
  • ovos moles (an egg yolk sweet) to taste ;
  • 2 egg yolks ;

Place the sugar on the flame with a little water.
When the water boils, add the peeled, raw, ground almonds. Boil a little longer, then take the mixture off the stove and add the two egg yolks. Stir well and knead a little.
Make small balls with a hole in the middle. Place the Malabar gourd preserve, «ovos moles» and «fios de ovos» in the hole which is then covered with some of the mixture.
Place them in a buttered and floured tray and bake them in a medium oven until they are slightly brown.
Take them out of the oven and off the tray and let them cool. When they are cold, cover them with icing and let them dry.
