  1. Pour the honey into a saucepan and warm over medium-low heat to 140 degrees F (60 degrees C). Stir the almonds into the warm honey and remove from heat. Mix the egg yolks, cinnamon, and lemon zest into the almonds. Fold the egg whites into the mixture.
  2. Line a dish with parchment paper. Pour the mixture onto the parchment paper and smooth to a 1/2-inch layer. Place a sheet of parchment paper atop the mixture and then place a cutting board over the paper; place a few items on top of the cutting board to give it some weight.
  3. Allow the turron to dry for 3 days. Cut into 1-inch squares to serve.

I had no luck with this recipe at all. Not only did it never set up, the ingredients separated as well.

I was so disappointed. It never set/hardened. I come to figure out there are ingrediants missing after the fact. I compared to other recipes and this one is forgetting the sugar. Expensive le...

It did not work at all. I followed the recipe exactly and the ingredients completely separated. I should have listened to the other reviews. The ingredients are expensive.
