DIRECTIONS

  • Combine butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg yolk and flour and stir until smooth.
  • Place dough in refrigerator for one hour.
  • To make filling, combine butter and sugar until smooth. Add almonds, eggs and food coloring and mix until well blended.
  • Butter an 8 inch pie tin.
  • Remove dough from refrigerator and roll out to fit the pie tin and then spread the filling evenly over the crust.
  • Bake in a slow oven - 250F - for 30 minutes. Cool in the tin.
  • When cool, sprinkle with powdered sugar or spread with a simple icing (1/2 c powdered sugar and 1 tablespoons water).
  • OPTIONAL: you can make these into small tarts instead. Follow same steps but bake in 375F oven for 20 minutes. These are called Mazarins.
