      Title: Almond nougat
 Categories: Candies
      Yield: 2 Servings
  1 1/2 c  Light corn syrup
      2 c  Sugar
    1/4 ts Salt
    1/4 c  Water
      2    Egg whites
    1/2 ts Almond extract
           Red or green food coloring
    1/4 c  Soft butter or margarine
      1 c  Toasted chopped almonds
    1/4 c  Chopped candied cherries
  DIRECTIONS: Mix first 4 ingredients in heavy saucepan. Cook, stirring,
  until sugar is dissolved. Cook, without stirring, until a small
  amount of the mixture dropped in cold water forms a hard ball
  (250-F). Beat egg whites until stiff, but not dry, in large bowl of
  electric mixer. Gradually beat in about one fourth (not more) of the
  syrup, and continue beating until mixture holds its shape. Cook
  remaining syrup until a small amount of mixture separates into hard
  and brittle threads when dropped in cold water (300-F). Gradually
  beat into first mixture, and continue beating until the mixture
  begins to hold its shape. Add flavoring and food coloring to tint a
  delicate shade. Beat in butter; continue beating until very thick and
  satiny. Stir in nuts and cherries. Press into a buttered 8x8x2" pan,
  smoothing top. Let stand until firm. Turn out of pan, and cut in 1
  1/2" by 1" pieces. Wrap each piece individually in waxed paper. For
  best flavor, store several days in a cool place before serving.
