Toot confection or Persian Marzipan Mulberry is one of the Persian sweets, especially for Norooz (Iranian New Year). This recipe is so simple and is made with only a few ingredients. These toots are perfect with a cup of hot black tea.

Yield: Serves 6

  • 1 2/3 cups (about 170 g) unsalted skinless almonds (I used slivered almonds)
  • 1 cup (about 120 g) icing sugar (also known as powdered sugar or confectioners' sugar)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 4-5 tablespoons white sugar
  • 4 tablespoons rosewater (you can find it at any Iranian store)
  • slivered pistachios

Using a food processor, grind the almonds into a fine powder. In a bowl, mix the ground almonds, icing sugar, ground cardamom and rosewater. Using your hands, combine until you get soft dough.

Spread the white sugar on a plate.

Take a small piece of dough and shape into white mulberries and roll each in white sugar. Then insert a sliver of pistachio as a stem.
