Description

This tradtional pie is one of those stealth desserts that seem too simple to be true but then takes hold of your palate after the very first bite. The filling is made by cooking sugar, almonds, and milk until the mixture caramelizes and thickens, and that's it. Pure genious. Be sure to heed the recipe and partially bake the pie crust before adding the filling so it stays crisp on the bottom rather than soggy.  

Ingredients

  • 300 grams all-purpose flour
  • 180 grams sugar
  • 1 small eggs
  • 150 grams margarine (softened)
  • 1 lemon (zest)
  • margarine (for greasing pan)
  • flour (for dusting)
  • 200 grams sliced almonds
  • 120 grams sugar
  • 120 grams margarine
  • 6 tablespoons milk

  3. Make a well in the middle and add egg, softened margarine and lemon zest.
  4. Mix ingredients until dough is smooth. If sticky, add a little more flour.

  6. Grease and flour a pie dish. Wrap dough on the rolling pin, transfer to pie dish and unroll.
  7. Use a knife to trim excess dough from edges. Use a fork to prick small holes in the bottom of the pan.
