Simple recipe on the preparation of the "Scattate di Alia" typical Sicilian sweet from the town of Alia (PA)
- 1 kg of peeled, chopped and toasted almonds
- kg. 1 of sugar
- gr. 300 flour (type 00)
- a pinch of ammonia
Put all the ingredients (except the devils) in a bowl, mix well and mix with a little water (at room temperature). The dough should be consistent.
Let it rest for about half an hour, then wetting the hand in a bowl of water, form balls of the size of a walnut, dip them in the little devils and place them in a baking dish (with parchment paper) quite far from each other. >
