This bread might just be better than your cookies! Give it a try for something different to have with dinner tonight.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Butter a fluted quiche mold and if possible, line the bottom with greaseproof paper. Using either food processor or mixer, blend almonds and sugar well. Add eggs, one at a time and mix for another 2 or 3 minutes in order to get a smooth and light mix. Add flour and mix well. Add butter and mix moderately, making sure that mix is homogeneous. Pour mix ½ to 2/3 in. thick into mold. Bake for about 15 minutes. Bread color will be dark gold and texture relatively firm to touch. Turn out bread a few minutes after removing from oven. This bread keeps well and can be served alone when warm or with seasonal fruits and custard. [6 servings]
