  • Summary

    This traditional Italian nougat is typically made with almonds, but we've substituted pistachios for their bright color and delicate flavor. Torrone can vary from firm to soft, but this one has a nice, subtle chew. Flavorless sheets of edible wafer paper keep the strips from sticking to one another.

    Ingredients

    • 1 1/2 cups clover or other mild honey
    • 1 1/2 cups sugar
    • 1/2 cup water
    • 3 large egg whites
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons orange-flower water
    • 3/4 teaspoon pure almond extract
    • 2 1/2 cups salted roasted unshelled pistachios
    • 1 tablespoon cornstarch plus additional for kneading
    • Equipment: an 8-inch square metal baking pan; a candy thermometer; a heavy-duty stand mixer fitted with whisk attachment; edible wafer paper
