Torrone is a nougat confection typically made with honey, almonds, and egg whites, pressed into the shape of a stick and eaten at Christmastime. Besides its addition of pistachios, our updated torrone takes leave of tradition with dried cranberries and shredded coconut.

    300 degrees is way too hot for the sugar. Ours burned and broke our ceramic bowl . I consulted another candy book and they recommended only bringing it up to 263 degrees and adding some of the hot sugar mix to the egg whites at 230.

    I made this...everything seemed to go correctly except it didn't set, and the rice paper was hard. So was I supposed to prepare the rice paper? If so, Why didn't it say so?

    This is a really great recipe. I added eliminated the coconut, added almonds, and about 1-1.5 teaspoons each of orange and lemon zest. Only problem is that it really doesn't fill a 9x13 pan. 9x9 is more appropriate.
