Panforte (Italian sweetness). Panforte is an Italian confection that contains a lot of nuts, dried fruits and spices. This dessert is usually prepared for Christmas! Panforte tastes very much like roasted nuts, but more aromatic and rich. Dessert is served by slicing it for coffee or tea.

Panforte is perfectly stored in a cool place for up to a month, if it is wrapped in parchment or tight hermetic dishes. And one more important feature of this dessert is that it is absolutely lean and vegetarian.

For cooking, we need nuts (take those that you like or have at home), also with dried and candied fruits, spices, flour, cocoa powder, sugar and natural honey.

A mixture of nuts and candied fruits - 1 glass;
Cinnamon - 2 tsp;

Natural honey - 200 grams;
Dried apricots - 100 grams;
Prunes - 200 grams;
Flour - 60 grams;
Ground ginger - 1/4 tsp;

Step by step recipe

Pour sugar into a ladle and add honey. Put on low heat and bring to a boil. Cut dried apricots and prunes into pieces.

Mix nuts, dried fruits, candied fruits. Add spices, cocoa, flour and melted honey with sugar and mix quickly and well. It is necessary to stir very quickly, since the mass hardens very quickly.

Put the mass in a low form and bake at 170 degrees, 30-40 minutes. Before serving, cool panforte completely and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Bon Appetit!
