DIRECTIONS

  • Beat the butter, egg yolks, and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Stir in the ground almonds, cream, and optional rum.
  • Dip the ladyfingers in the milk and cover the bottom of a 9-inch (23 cm) springform pan with them.
  • (Note: Wrap the outside of the springform pan with aluminum foil and secure with a piece of string to prevent leakage.) Spread 1/3 of the almond mixture over the ladyfingers.
  • Repeat with alternating layers of ladyfingers and almond mixture, ending with a layer of ladyfingers.
  • Wrap tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil, place a heavy plate or cutting board on top, and refrigerate overnight.
  • To serve, run a thin knife blade around the inside of the pan before releasing the spring.
  • Press toasted slivered almonds around the side of the torte and top with powdered sugar or whipped cream.
