DIRECTIONS

  • In medium bowl, mix together butter, sugar and almond extract.
  • Add beaten egg except for 1 teaspoon.
  • Sift flour and baking powder, and add to bowl, mixing with wet ingredients.
  • Put dough in greased 9 inch pie plate.
  • Mix the reserved 1 tsp of beaten egg with 1 tsp of water, and brush over dough.
  • Sprinkle with sliced almonds, if desired. (My Oma always used the almonds, it looks pretty and adds a nice touch!).
  • Bake at 350°F for 25-30 minutes or until done (firm to the touch).
  • This is a dense cake, but should be soft on the inside and hard on the outside, but not too hard!
