Almond Crusted Torte

A delicious, easy dessert that reminds me of a big almond flavored sugar cookie.  Great for a brunch, dinner party or whatever occasion you need a dessert.  This is from my friend Ann.


  • 1-2/3 cups all purpose flour
  • l-1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • l cup butter, melted
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 Tablespoons almond extract
  • 2-1/4 ounces sliced almonds
  • Confectioner's Sugar, optional for top of torte after it has cooled

Stir all of the ingredients together except for the almonds.  Pour into a 10" pie pan that you have sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.  Sprinkle the almonds over the top.  Bake in a preheated 350° oven for 35-45 minutes or until lightly browned.  Cool completely and sprinkle with confectioner's sugar if desired.
