The package was too beautiful to open, but I did it anyway...

Just past nine last night my dear friend Laurie appeared with a beautifully wrapped bag of her homemade almond roca. The tag was so adorable with tiny bells and holly that I hung it on the tree.

For many, many years I have received this same delightful visit. Her skill at candy making is only outdone by her loving friendship. She has been a long time confidant and trusted friend offering encouragement and allowed many of my tears to fall on her shoulders over the years.

Fortunately for me, there is only one person in my family who insists I share the buttery, almondy deliciousness. I try to make it last... but it is physically impossible.
