Almond Shortbread Topping
Yields: 6-8 servings
  • 1¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 6 tablespoons cold butter, cubed
  • ½ cup heavy whipping cream
  • ½ cup sliced almonds
  1. In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Using a fork or pastry blender, cut butter into flour until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in cream and almonds just until combined. (Mixture will be crumbly.)
  2. Using your hands, gently shape dough into a disk. Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until ready to use.
