almond custard tart

to make your tuesday and wednesday more sweet here for you a lovely recipe for the almond tart. it's very very delicious and you will certainly love it!


to make this refined dessert you will need:
-shortcrust pastry (better if home made)
-120 g of minced almonds (almond flour)
-120 g of butter
-120 g of icing sugar
-1 egg and one egg yolk
-2 table spoons of cornflour (or normal flour)
-few drops of almond aroma
prepare the shortcrust pastry for blind baking: butter well the baking pan, spread the pastry and make small but many holes with a fork. cover with baking paper (creased to make it softer) and fill with raw rice or beans. bake for 15 minutes in a preheated oven (180°C), take away the baking paper with beans and put again in the oven for 10 minutes or until the pastry becomes gold. leave for cooling.
in the meantime prepare the almond custard. work well the butter with a wooden spoon until it becomes very soft (the butter must have a room temperature and must be cut in small pieces). add slowly the icing sugar and almond flour. mix well and add the egg and the egg yolk. add the cornflour and almond aroma. spread the custrad on the baked pastry and put in the already hot oven (160°C). bake for about 40-45 minutes or until the custard becomes brown. cool completely before serving. serve with icing sugar.

The photo is making my mouth water. I don't know where to buy almond flour. Could I just put almonds in a food processor and chop them up instead?
