Mandelmusslor (Almond ”clams”)
Mandelmusslor are traditional in Sweden and it is almondcakes baked in a special mold.
100 gr almonds, blanched and grinded
5 dl flour
210 gr butter, room temperature
1,5 dl sugar
Butter for the cake molds
Boil the almonds and take off the skin. Let them dry and when dried grind in an almond grinder. It also works to use almond flour that you can buy in the store.
Place the flour on the baking table. Put the butter, grinded almonds and sugar in the middle. Work it all together with your fingertips until it is smooth dough.
Heat the oven to 200 Celsius Degrees.
Grease the cake molds brushing them inside with melted butter.
Roll out the dough and divide to about 40 pieces and press them out in the molds.
Take the cakes carefully out while still warm. They can be a bit difficult to get out of the molds.
Serve with whipped cream and jam or fresh berries on the top.
If you serve them without anything, place them upside down on the tray, since they look nicer that way.
