Medicis Pastel Almonds are a little luxury that I always look forward to at Easter!
When Catherine de Medicis married the future King Henry II of France in 1533, her chefs dazzled wedding guests with these sweet, crunch confections. Their French name, dragee (from Middle French dragie, meaning “coated”), refers to their manner of production: slender Lerida almonds from Spain are enclosed in a very thin sugar shell. This classic assortment in pastel colors is made at the family-owned Confiserie de Medicis, a French confectionery named for the legendary queen.
