  • Summary

    I've had this clipping in a dessert binder forever, and I'm not sure the source, but article author Martha gives credit to an old Fine Cooking recipe by pastry chef Patricia Heyman

    Ingredients

    • 13 oz. (3 sticks plus 2 Tbs.) unsalted butter, room temperature
    • 1? C. granulated sugar
    • 2-4 oz. almond paste (optional)
    • 2 eggs
    • 3¾ C. all purpose flour (spoon the flour into your measuring cup, don't scoop it up)
    • 1½ finely chopped hazelnuts or almonds (optional)
    • 2 C. berry, peach or apricot preserves (I liked the blackberry and cherry jam best here)
    • flaked salt to finish (optional)
