I've never used almond flour before. It's so much more expensive than all-purpose flour!
Please share your favorite almond flour recipe.
I haven't received any responses, so I will share with you what I ended up making. This pastry recipe was on the side of the package containing the almond flour. I modified the recipe a bit.
My family really loved these and I'll be making them more often!
Apple Frangipane Galette (I call these, "Apple Almond Pastries")
1/2 cup butter (at room temp)
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 1/2 cup Almond meal/flour
2 T white flour
1/4 tsp. almond extract
2 Pkgs. puff pastry (thawed)*
2 apples (peeled,cored,sliced thin)
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
4 tsp. butter, melted
Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
In large bowl, beat butter & powered sugar. Beat in almond meal & white flour. Beat in 2 eggs & almond extract.
On lightly floured surface, roll out the small circles of puff pastry so they are about 1/4" thickness. Transfer the circles to the baking sheet. Put about 3 T of almond mixture in center of each pastry round & spread out leaving 1/2" edge of pastry showing.
Beat remaining 1 egg lightly & brush pastry edge with beaten egg. Place apples on top of almond mixture in a spiral leaving the pastry edge showing.
Mix together sugar & cinnamon, then sprinkle evenly on top of apple slices. Drizzle 1/2 tsp. of melted butter on top of each galette.
Refrigerate galettes on baking sheet for 15 minutes. Bake at 375 degrees for about 22 minutes or until golden brown & pastry is puffed.
*Notes: I used Fuji apples. I baked one sheet of galettes at a time. I used Bob's Red Mill finely ground almond meal/flour (bought at Gelson's market). I used 2 boxes of Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Shells (in the frozen section of the market). 6 shells per box.
One box contains 6 "shells" (they are round & about 1/2" thick)
