  • 2 1/4 cups AP flour unbleached, keep a little extra for dusting
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 8 oz unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg yolk



  1. In a bowl, whisk together the AP flour, almond flour and salt.

  2. Put a paddle attachment onto your stand mixer, then combine butter and confectioner's sugar in mixer bowl. Mix on medium-low speed until combined, about 4 minutes.

  3. Mix in the egg and then the yolk, allowing each to be incorporated before adding the next. In 2 parts, add the flour mixtures, scraping down the sides of the bowl after each part.

  4. Turn bowl over with dough mixture onto a clean lightly-floured work surface. Divide in half, shape into flattened desks and wrap each 1 in plastic warp. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or overnight.

Recipe Notes

Dough can be stored frozen for up to 1 month. Thaw it overnight in refrigerator before using. Baking directions depend on the type of pastry. For the cutout fruit tart, cut your design out of the dough, put cutout design in freezer for 10 minutes, then bake 350ºF/176ºC until golden brown.
