Almond Rich Shortcrust Pastry
Absolutely terrific as described and the video is very clear.
On the second time, I had a guest with a gluten allergy and decided to dare and substitute the flour in place of which I used a mix of ground hazelnuts, walnuts and almonds I ground myself and also added a little Amaretto di Saronno and I must say.... it was terrific. I did not add any sugar (for fear to make it too sweet with the Ameretto). I will definitely do both recipes over and over I am sure.
