  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup ground almonds
  • 1/4 cup icing sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon finely grated lemon rind
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter cubed
  • 1 egg yolk


In large bowl, whisk together flour, almonds, icing sugar, lemon rind and salt. Using pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs with a few larger pieces. Stirring briskly with fork, stir in egg yolk until pastry begins to hold together. With hands, knead gently just until pastry holds together. Wrap in plastic wrap. (Make- ahead: Refrigerate for up to 2 days.)
