Top Review by geemurr

I tried this recipe as is and it did not work. The almond flour I used was just ground almonds, if there's another one out there please post the brand. Adding eggs to ground almonds just turned it into a soupy mess, I had to add regular flour to stiffen up the dough. All of the other recipes for crumiri contain cornmeal and all of the recipes with almond flour were exactly the same. What did I do wrong? Help
