Traditional Almond Confection of Provence

Perhaps nothing better represents Provence than the Calisson. These sweet almond shaped confections are made with candied fruit, ground local almonds and topped with a thin layer of royal icing. Once shaped into their distinctive diamond, they are frosted with cool icing and packaged.

Legend has it that these tasty confections were handed out on September 1st to commemerate the end of the Black Plague or given to those who were in need of redemption from that most unsavory sin...gluttony. It was thought the light, slightly chewy confection would bring forgiveness. We can't be sure, but we certainly have been known to go a little gluttonous on this box of Calissons!
