Serves: 4 Prep Time: Nutrition facts: 200 calories 20 grams fat


  • Butter (room temp) 100g
  • Powdered Sugar 100g
  • Almond Powder 100g
  • Eggs (room temp) 95g
  • Rum 5ml


  1. Lightly beat the butter.
  2. Sift in the powdered sugar & almond powder. (In the video the caption says almond powder, but I sifted in both powdered sugar & almond powder together!) Mix well but don’t beat it vigorously.
  3. Gradually add the eggs (Do not add all the eggs at once. Split it over 5~6 steps) while beating it.
  4. Finally add in the rum and mix.
  5. Leave it to rest in the fridge. Always use the almond cream the day after you make it.



  1. All the ingredients need to be at room temp (20℃)

How to store:

In the battered state (before baking) you can store it in the fridge for up to a week. Obviously, after baking it you need to assemble the tart!
