Almond Crusted Torte – Lynn’s Recipes

A delicious, easy dessert that reminds me of a big almond flavored sugar cookie. Great for a brunch, dinner party or whatever occasion you need a dessert. This is from my friend Ann.

Almond Crusted Torte

1-2/3 cups all purpose flour
l-1/2 cups granulated sugar
l cup butter, melted
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 eggs, beaten
2 Tablespoons almond extract
2-1/4 ounces sliced almonds
Confectioner’s Sugar, optional for top of torte after it has cooled

Stir all of the ingredients together except for the almonds. Pour into a 10″ pie pan that you have sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Sprinkle the almonds over the top. Bake in a preheated 350° oven for 35-45 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely and sprinkle with confectioner’s sugar if desired.
