Dried and Sliced Figs in Sugar Plums


1/3 cup slivered almonds (2 ounces)

1/4 cup honey
1 tablespoon grated orange zest
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1/4 cup granulated sugar

Recipe Directions

In a small dry skillet over medium heat, toast the almonds to bring out their flavor. Remove from heat; cool.

Combine figs, cocoa, cinnamon and almonds in a food processor and pulse just until they become the size of peppercorns.

Add honey, orange zest and extract. Pulse 3 or 4 times more or just until mixed in. Spread the sugar in a shallow dish.

Form the dough into 1-inch balls and roll in sugar. Makes about 2 dozen sugar plums.
