This Easy and Delicious Almond Pastry is today’s creation. I was going through what I had made and showed you already, and i noticed that i didn’t make an almond pastry, even if almonds are my favorite nuts. However, i did make some desserts with my second favorite nuts, like the: Pistachio and Pear Cake with Domes, Pistachio and Ricotta Cake.
So i decided, along with almonds, to use another very common ingredient that i use, puff pastry sheet (which i keep frozen in my freezer). And i thought of using them in the most easiest way possible.
Everyone who had this dessert loved it. Easy and Delicious Almond Pastry would be a perfect Thanksgiving dessert if you need to bring a dish somewhere.
