How to make it

  • Heat oven to 400. Have a baking sheet ready.
  • Process 1/2 cup almonds and the sugar in a processor or blender just until ground. Finely chop remaining 1/2 cup.
  • Stir egg, cream, milk and extract in a bowl until blended.
  • Whisk flour, ground almond mixture, baking powder and salt in a large bowl to combine. Add butter adn toss to coat with flour. Quickly, working with fingertips or a pastry blender, rub or cut in butter until coarse crumbs form.
  • Add egg mixture; stir with a fork just until a dough forms. Don't overdo; dough will be wet and sticky. Stir in chopped almonds. Still in bowl, gently knead dough by hand, or turn it with a rubber spatula 8 to 10 times.
  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured work surface; divide in half. Working with 1 piece at a time, pat dough into a circle about 5 inches in diameter. Cut in 6 wedges; brush wtih water. Top each with a few sliced slmonds. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheet.
  • Bake 18 to 21 minutes until golden. Transfer to a wire rack adn cool 10 minutes before serving.
