Almond Puff Pastry Slice
A quick and easy recipe using store-bought puff pastry with a velvety, sweet almond filling fortified by almond liqueur. Great with coffee.
ready-made puff pastry
In a blender, grind almonds to a rough powder.
Rub sugar into the butter to a lumpy mix.
Beat the eggs then add the almond powder, butter mix and liquor. Mix well until a smooth consistency.
Cut 2 circles out of the puff pastry sheets, one circle should be slightly larger than the other.
Place the smaller circle on a sheet of baking paper and cover with the filling – leaving a 1.5-2cm border around the edges.
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.
Seal the edges and place in a greased pie dish. Bake for 30 minutes at 200 degrees Celsius.
Allow to cool then dust with icing sugar before serving.
