  • Crust:.
  • Cream butter and sugar until light. Beat in egg, vanilla and flour.
  • Drop a rounded teaspoon of crust mixture into each greased small muffin cup, pressing batter over bottom and up around sides, leaving inside hollow; a coating 1/4 inch thick.
  • Almond Filling:.
  • With electric mixer, gradually add sugar to beaten eggs, beating until incorporated. Fold in ground almonds (or almond paste) and divide equally over crust.
  • Bake until set and browned at 325 degrees 25 to 30 minutes.
