Most almond-y dessert?
Was suggested on the "nut heavy dishes" board to ask here: what's your very most almond-y flavored dessert recipe? I've amped up recipes using almond oil, paste, marzipan, extract, almond milk, every type of roasted almond, etc. All are good, but I can't seem to get enough of the almond flavor. Ideas?
There's been a rich, buttery bundt cake recipe on the back of the label of Solo almond filling that is excellent, and keeps very well in the refrigerator. It is also on the http://www.solofoods.com/browse-recip... site, along with other almond delights. There are also almond-centric recipes at www.odense.com.
These muffins are not really dessert but better since you can have at breakfast :)
I have made a raw nut crust for bars and pies before by simply blitzing together almond meal with dates (soak in hot water if they are not soft
)My favorite snack ever is a date smeared with almond butter
Oddly, maybe coffee tortoni. This recipe has done me well for decades.
1 egg white
1 tablespoon instant coffee powder
⅛ teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
1 cup heavy cream
¼ cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
⅛ teaspoon almond extract
¼ cup toasted almonds, finely chopped
Beat egg white, coffee & salt until stiff but not dry. Gradually beat in 2 tablespoons sugar until stiff & satiny. Beat cream, 1/4 cup sugar, vanilla & almond extract until stiff. Fold into egg white mixture. Fold in nuts. Spoon into 8 ramekins or pots de cremes. Freeze until firm. Thaw slightly before serving.
