Number of Servings: 6
Ingredients: Egg Custard:
3 Tbsp whole milk
4 Tbsp whipping cream
1 cup sugar
1 egg
6 egg yolks
2 tsp corn starch
6 Tbsp unsalted butter, cut into 1/4-inch cubes

Almond Crust:
1 cup almonds
1 cup powdered sugar
4 egg whites
1/4 cup sugar
Directions: This light-as-air dessert demands heavy machinery – using a food processor, grind almonds and powdered sugar to a fine powder. In a separate container, whisk egg whites and sugar until it forms a stiff meringue and fold in almond mixture. Butter a round 7-inch cake pan and spread mixture into an even layer. Bake at 350o on middle rack for about 30 minutes or until the crust is separating from the cake pan.
Mix all ingredients (except butter) over medium heat and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil for 20 seconds; pour into a bowl. Immediately stir in cold, diced butter until fully incorporated. Once the butter has melted and the custard begins to cool, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
