  • 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 large egg, beaten
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon almond flour


  1. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat together butter and sugar until well combined. Add egg and mix, scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary.

    I would like to know where to buy the little tart pans? Will the petit four pans work?

    Almond flour can be bought at Trader Joe's. Also at the Wild Oats Market stores, you can buy it online from them as well. Hope this helps.
