A delicious sweet speciality from Aix-en-Provence made with almonds and candied fruit by Léonard Parli

The Léonard Parli confectionery is one of the oldest in Aix-en-Provence. Founded in 1874, it is famous for its calissons - little diamond-shaped sweets made from ground almonds and candied fruits. In the 17th century calissons were said to prevent plague, but we think this is just an excuse - but now that Southern France is happily plague-free, we suggest you celebrate with a calisson or two!

Serving suggestion: Extremely chic served with coffee as an alternative to the ubiquitous mint!

Composition :
Ground almonds, candied melon, orange peel, sugar, egg white.
