This is the classic cake that you eat and say ”how much good is it??” And until it is over now and then you take a piece … .. The recipe is from Maria Pia, Roberto’s mother, whom I thank for letting me know and taste it, and I curse for how much I eat!
Ingredients for a cake for 4-6 people
250 g of flour
250 g of sugar
250 g of almonds (with skin) coarsely chopped
200 g butter at room temperature
2 egg yolks
Mix everything with hands to blend the ingredients to obtain a compact dough, then lie it in a pan, fights well with your hands to level it.
At this point put it in the oven at 170 degrees for 30/35 minutes

Smell of Christmas? … And then let’s start from candies, the ones that make you gain weight just looking at them but they give us so much satisfaction!
Ingredients for 25-30 biscuits:
250 gr. almonds
200 gr. White sugar
2 egg whites
A pinch of salt
Raisins, candied orange, dried banana, and you like
Blanch the almonds in boiling water, peel and toast in oven grill for a few minutes. Blend them up to create a mixture, and add the sugar. Whip the egg whites with a pinch of salt. Add the egg whites into the mixture and work the dough with your hands. Place baking paper on a baking tray and create small balls with the dough(put them far enough otherwise they will melt and become a single biscuit). Above each ball put an almond, or orange or a slice of banana and so on .. Bake at 180 degrees for 7-8 minutes.

This is really a high-calorie junk …. But today it’s raining!

Cut the puff pastry to the size of your molds, and bake in oven for 10 minutes (put above it some dried beans otherwise it would swell during cooking).
