This is a dessert from Navia (Asturias) typical in all festivals. It is so easy to make that you can always be successful. Let’s do it then!
2 Eggs and 2 yolks
900 grs sugar
1kg grounded almonds
½ white of an egg
A little bit of powdered sugar
Green and red ice fruits glacés
Mix all the ingredients together until you obtain small pastry dough. Preheat the oven at 200 degrees. Then make small cylindered shapes with your hands wet, like snakes.
Put them in the oven, and be careful, because this step is very important, since when you see the dough turn into toasted colour, it means that it is already done.
Mix half the white of the eggs and whip half an egg until light. Then thicken it by adding powdered sugar. After that decorate it as it is shown in the picture above.
