    Scafire-Jen's Note:

    I found this recipe in the cookbook that comes along with my Kitchenaid stand mixer. I've looked everywhere for variations but haven't been able to find even one. This is by no means low-cal, so portion sizes should be kept small. One thing that should be stressed is to not overcook the 'cakes'. Low temperature for a longer cooking time is preferable, especially if your oven runs hot. Also, be sure to liberally grease and flour the pan you use. One method I've developed is to cut out circles of parchment paper and lay them over an overturned cake pan. (If you put them into a cake pan you wont be able to get them out). Another tip: don't skimp on the almonds. If you don't use enough they won't turn out. This is not a smiple recipe. I have yet to perfect it :)
