  • 250g butter softened

  • 1 egg yolk

  • 140g caster sugar

  • 2 tsp almond extract

  • 100g whole blanched almond finely chopped

  • 300g plain flour


<ol> <li>Mix the butter and sugar in a large bowl with a wooden spoon, then add the egg yolk and almond extract and briefly beat to combine. Sift over the flour and stir until the mixture is well combined - you might need to get your hands in at the end to give everything a really good mix and press the dough together.</li> <li>Shape the dough into a large oval log, about 8-10cm in diameter, then roll in 100g finely chopped whole blanched almonds, pressing the nuts onto all sides. Carefully wrap in cling film, then chill or freeze.</li> <li>To cook, heat oven to 180C/160C fan/Gas Mark 4, then slice off 1cm thick ovals with a sharp knife. Bake on a non-stick baking tray for 12 minutes until pale gold, then transfer to a cooling rack to firm up.</li> </ol>
