Appearances can be deceiving. Take these for example. These were a disaster. I would say an unmitigated disaster, because that does sound rather dramatic, but I did manage to salvage at least 5.
16 beautifully formed mounds of almonds, pecans and cherries went into the oven. A giant bubbling puddle of caramel and nuts came out. Cue a frantic Emily muttering "No no no no no no no you dicks" while she tried desperately to prod them back into some kind of circle.
So, no recipe for these babies, because I wouldn't want to inflict that kind of stress on anyone. Does anyone else get stressed when baking goes wrong? My best friend still laughs at me for the time two meringue mixtures failed on me and I had to go have a lie down because I felt ill.
They still tasted good though.
