Melt the butter on a low flame then add in order to obtain a grainy dough.

Step 2

Spread the nuts on a pastry plaque covered with sulfurized paper.

Leave them in the over at 150 °C (th. 5) during about 20 min so they are nice and golden.


Blend until reduced to powder. Then introduce in your mixture.
