  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander

  • 6 tablespoons chilled unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 2 tablespoons ice water


  1. In a food processor, pulse the flour, almonds, sesame seeds, salt, and spices. Add butter and process until mixture resembles coarse meal. With machine running, add egg yolk and ice water through the feed tube in a slow, steady stream. Process until dough just comes together

  2. Turn out dough onto a clean work surface. Flatten into a disk. Wrap in plastic; chill at least 1 hour or overnight.
