A NOTE ON MEASUREMENTS

We work with chefs from all around the world, which is why we include both imperial (cups/ounces) and metric (grams) measurements. To achieve best results, we highly recommend that you utilize a kitchen scale and follow the metric measurements when possible.

PREPARATION

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.


Cream together the butter, whole egg, two of the egg yolks, surag and almond flavoring. Stir in the orange grind. Sift together the baking powder and flour. Fold flour mixture and ground almonds into the dough. Fold in one tablespoon of orange juice.
