Шаг 1

The grinded mixture should be "crumbs". See photo.

Шаг 2

Add one COLD egg. Quickly knead the dough (it is advisable to not knead it on a wooden surface, granite or marble, as the wooden surface is warm). The dough should be elastic.
Sculpt from it a ball, wrap in clingfilm and put in the fridge for 50-60 minutes.

Mix flour, almonds (if You have not, like me, you can take almonds and grind it in a coffee grinder), 50 g wheat flour, 100 g sugar and 80 g of COLD butter, cut into cubes and sachet of vanillin. Grind all the fingers as in the process of making the dough. Add 2 large eggs. The dough this time, turns watery. Put it in the fridge.

Meanwhile, our first take out the dough from the refrigerator. Cut out baking paper circle, tracing the outline of a form that will bake a cake. Form should not be very high, but not low, about 4 cm in height.

Шаг 5

On the dough in the form, put 100 g of jam. Well even out.

Шаг 6

From the fridge to get the almond paste, spread on jam. Good spread with a wooden spatula.
Put in oven for 20 minutes.

Шаг 7

Meanwhile, finely chop along with 50 gr of almond. If You have almond nut "petals", use it like this.

Шаг 8
