sweet couscous

for reasons that I don't really want to go into, we always call it couthcouth ...

340g couscous
50g unsalted butter
150g blanched almonds
3 tbsps icing sugar

garnish: ground cinnamon

prepare couscous according to the packet.  Sorry - I *know* this is a cop out, but they're all different.  Set aside.

put butter into saucepan and sauté the almonds until golden brown. Remove from the pan and leave to cool, then coarsely grind 2/3 of the almonds in a food processor. Retain the remaining 1/3 for garnish.  Stir ground almonds and icing sugar through the warm couscous, and arrange it into a mound.  Sprinkle with ground cinnamon and the almonds.  Serve immediately with more icing sugar, if you like .. and why not.
