- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
- 1/2 cup sliced almonds
- 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
Combine flour, sugar and nutmeg in a mixing bowl; stir well to mix and stir in sliced almonds.
Stir in the butter evenly. Set aside for 5 minutes, then, using your fingertips, break the mixture into 1/4 to 1/2 inch crumbs. Set aside again while you prepare the filling.
