I recently borrowed a very old Weight Watcher’s book out of the library and this recipe was in it. Though the original called for using a sugar substitute, I used sugar and it came out wonderfully, though with considerably more calories, I’d assume!
Almond Jelly is NOT what you’d expect. It’s smooth, creamy and the extract gives it a special touch that is just so darn good. It’s the perfect dessert to make for guests because it’s super simple, but is so delicious. Try garnishing with a few slivers of almond on top.
