This is a Dilmah tea recipe that I found attached to Woman's Day; is Woman's Day everyday food mini cookbook. When you think of this recipe, I would “suggest” you think more of it like an Italian biscotti biscuit to dunk in tea rather than a light, airy cupcake. If you would like to read the story why I made these: http://whatsonthelist.wordpress.com/2013/01/06/amore-almond-cupcakes-using-a-dilmah-recipe/ NOTE: —I filled the mini muffin trays 3/4 fill. —No need to press almonds down into mixture. Database would not accept the specific tea which is Dilmah Italian Almond Real Leaf, ingredient is listed as teabags.
