Ingredients
  • 2sheets ready-made puff pastry
  • 125g almonds
  • 1tbsp almond liqueur
  • 2 eggs
  • 25g butter
  • 125g sugar
Instructions
  1. In a blender, grind almonds to a rough powder.
  2. Rub sugar into the butter to a lumpy mix.
  3. Beat the eggs then add the almond powder, butter mix and liquor. Mix well until a smooth consistency.
  4. Cut 2 circles out of the puff pastry sheets, one circle should be slightly larger than the other.
  5. Place the smaller circle on a sheet of baking paper and cover with the filling – leaving a 1.5-2cm border around the edges.
  6. Make some shallow cuts from the centre out (like the spokes on a wheel) on the larger circle then place it on top of the smaller circle, covering the filling.
  7. Seal the edges and place in a greased pie dish. Bake for 30 minutes at 200 degrees Celsius.
  8. Allow to cool then dust with icing sugar before serving.
