How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Arrange almonds on a baking sheet in a single layer and toast in oven for 10 minutes. Set aside to cool, then finely chop.
  • While almonds are baking, combine honey, orange zest, cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg in a medium mixing bowl.
  • Add chopped almonds, apricots, and dates to honey mixture and mix well.
  • Pinch off rounded teaspoon-size pieces of the mixture and roll into balls. (Rinse your hands often, as mixture is very sticky.)
  • Roll balls in confectioner's sugar, then refrigerate in single layers between sheets of waxed paper in airtight containers for up to one month.
  • Their flavor improves after ripening for several days.
  • Sugar plums tend to absorb the confectioner's sugar, so re-dust just before eating if you like.
