What are Calissons?

Calisons are exquisite treats originating from the charming town of Aix-en-Provence, nestled in the picturesque landscapes of southern France. These delights are a harmonious fusion of Mediterranean flavors, combining finely ground almonds, candied fruits (usually melon or orange peel), and a smooth and delicate royal icing. The result is an almond-shaped confection, with a smooth texture reminiscent of marzipan, and subtle, complex flavors.
