|Preparation||Start to finish|
|1 hour 28 min.||1 hour 28 min.|
|1||Chop 50 g Candied grapefruit peel using food processor to produce small pieces of peel.||5 min.|
|2||Stop the processor, then add 100 g ground almonds and 80 g icing sugar.||2 min.|
|3||Switch on again and add the egg white a spoonful at a time until you have a smooth paste - calisson paste.||3 min.|
|4||Spread the calisson paste out roughly on a sheet of rice paper laid on a chopping board.
Put the paste between two rulers 1cm (0.4 inch) thick, simple iron bars in this case, but use anything you like (wood, plastic...).
|5||Place a sheet of cooking parchment on top of the paste.||1 min.|
|6||Roll out the paste, guided by the rules either side, into a very even sheet.||5 min.|
|7||Cut out the calissons with a cutter, pressing down really hard (I give a light hammer blow on the top) so that you also cut through the rice paper underneath.||15 min.|
|8||Gather all the offcuts of paste, roll out again on the remaining piece of rice paper and cut out more.
Continue unti you have used up all the calisson paste.
|9||Prepare 125 g Royal icing.||10 min.|
|10||Dip the top of the calisson (the side without rice paper) in royal icing. You can stick it on a fork to make this easier, but this isn't essential.|
|11||Wipe off any excess icing on the sides with your finger and place the calisson on a baking sheet.
You will notice how, after a few seconds, the royal icing becomes smooth once the calisson is laid flat.
Do this with all the calissons.
|12||Leave to dry exposed to the air for 2 days, until the royal icing turns hard.
Your calissons are ready.
