3Prepare the appliance Beat the soft butter with the sugar. Add the egg and the almond powder to mix gently until you obtain a homogeneous preparation.

4Remove the dough from the refrigerator. Roll out with a rolling pin so that it is about 2 mm thick (no more). Place the dough in a 22 cm diameter pie dish and line it so that it hugs the sides and you get a regular pie shell. Trim the excess dough around the edges.
