Almonds Pie. Where to start? I am a sweet tooth, some say this condition is never-ending. For the last couple of days I had a craving for sweets. Not just any sweets – CONDENSED MILK! Of course there is a myriad of recipes and pies containing this food of the gods. My eyes somewhat concentrated more on pies.
As a companion to my condensed milk pie adventure I chose almonds. It is the simplest nut you can get, and frankly, the cheapest. But, the good news is the pie turns out to be of the same quality as if it was made from hazelnuts. What you get in the end is a world full of sweet, chewy texture with almonds peeking out.
Wanna try? Really, nothing too complicated. All it takes is maybe 10 minutes to prepare and 20 minutes to bake in the oven. Simple time saver.
For the dough: 1 table spoon of sugar, 2 eggs, 150 gr butter, 1.5-2 cups of flour.
The filling: 1 jar of condensed milk, 250 gr of almonds.
And you are ready to get to work!
Mix up all the ingredients for the dough. Once done, put all you’ve created with your own hands into a baking form (with high edges), try to make an effort to design high edges for your dough as well. All this is done using your fingers, so don’t be afraid to get dirty! The edges of your dough should get up to 2-3 cm in height.
Done? Nice. Now concentrate on the filling. Now, this one will be done in a matter of seconds, ready? Spread all the almonds evenly on the dough in the form. Proudly open your jar of condensed milk and pour it over the nuts. Again, disperse it evenly over the almonds. Preheat the oven up to 180 degrees C. Put your creation in the oven and wait patiently for about 25 minutes.
