Neopolitan Mustaches

Neopolitan Mustaches

1/2 pound blanched almonds — finely chopped

1/2 pound walnuts — finely chopped

3 drops orange flower water

1/2 cup honey

1 teaspoon cinnamon

pinch freshly ground pepper

2 egg whites — lightly beaten

1 1/2 cups flour – approximately

Combine nuts, orange flower water, honey, cinnamon, fresh ground pepper and lightly beaten egg whites. Mix to a paste. Add flour gradually, working it into a thick paste but one that is not too stiff. Spread to ¼ inch to ½ inch thickness on a board and cut into diamond shapes about 2 inches long. Place on a buttered and floured baking sheet. Bake in a preheated 250-degree oven for 20-30 minutes or until firm.

Yields: 24

Traditionally served in Italy at Christmas time.
