Crisp pastry - Ingredients:
150 g butter
95 g powdered sugar
30 g almond flour
1 g salt

Soften butter at room temperature.
Whisk the sugar, salt and almond flour into the softened butter.

Custard - Ingredients:
300 g milk
3 egg yolks
75g sugar crystal
15g corn starch (Gustin)
Foam the egg yolks with sugar. Add flour and cornstarch and mix well until combined.
Add the vanilla aroma and the vanilla bean seeds to the milk and heat to a light yellow colour.
Heat on fire, being careful not to boil (it must not boil - keep at temperature to stream, not boil).
Add some of the milk to the kettle with the egg yolk and mix thoroughly. Add the rest of the milk and continue to cook until the cream is smooth and tight.
Pour the cream into the pan and protect it with nylon foil to avoid the formation of a dark surface layer.
Almond cream - Ingredients:
75 g butter
75g crystal sugar
Mix butter at room temperature with sugar to a foamy mixture.
Add almond flour, and mix.
Add the eggs several times until the mixture is combined.
If desired, flavoured with orange peel, lemon...
Cool the mixture.
Coat the mold with the dough from the refrigerator and bake in a preheated oven at 160 degrees, for about 17-20 minutes.
While baking the dough, combine 50g of egg yolk with 15g of sweet cream. With the resulting mixture, coat the baked dough and continue baking for another 8-10 minutes.
Then add almond cream to the dough mold and bake for another 10 minutes.
Mix the vanilla cream to soften it and fill it with cooled dough in the mold.
We decorate with fresh forest fruits, strawberries or other seasonal fruit!
