The name is impressive, and so is the taste in this elegant dessert featuring circles of puff pastry surrounding an almond-orange filling. But what's even more impressive is that the recipe is so easy to follow.

How to Make It

Heat the oven to 375°F.  Place the almonds, sugar, butter, 1 egg, orange zest and vanilla extract into a food processor.  Cover and process until the mixture is smooth. Unfold 1 pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface. Roll the pastry sheet into an 11-inch square. Cut into a 10-inch circle.  Repeat with the remaining pastry sheet. Place 1 pastry circle onto a baking sheet.  Spread the almond mixture on the pastry circle to within 1 inch of the edge. Beat the remaining egg and the water in a small bowl with a fork or whisk.  Brush the edge of the pastry circle with the egg mixture. Place the remaining pastry circle over the filling.  Crimp the edges of the circles together with a fork. Bake for 25 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown.  Remove the pastry from the baking sheet and let cool completely on a wire rack.  Sprinkle the pastry with the confectioners' sugar.

    Almond Orange Pithivier

    This is a recipe I've seen and tried but I can't remember where from. At the time I had purchased Almond flour and orange oil. I replaced the almonds and put in oil(a few drops) and it was delicious!
