Algerian Harrissa - Not a Chilli Sauce but a Sweet!

Description

Quite a misleading name and I've never been able to get to the bottom of it.... However, these harrissa are very pretty little Algerian helouwa (sweets). I always include these on my trays of Eid helouwa that I give to friends and family as they are so nice to look at (and not bad tasting too). I also make these using a mix of 100g ground almonds with 250g desiccated coconut (ground up). These freeze well so you can whip a few out whenever you need them. Oh and the best thing? You don't even need to cook them!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter or 1 tablespoon margarine
  • 1/2 teaspoon orange blossom water (mazhar)
  • 3 tablespoons cornflour, for dusting
  • 3 tablespoons sugar, for rolling
  • 4 cups ground almonds
  • food coloring, of choice
  • glace cherries (silver balls) or angelica (silver balls) or dragees (silver balls)
