  5. Wrap the dough in plastic and chill for 1 hour.

ALMOND CREAM:
  1. In a food processor, combine the powdered sugar, Amoretti Blanched Almond Flour, and cornstarch. Mix for about 30 seconds.
  2. Pour mixture into a mixing bowl and add the room temperature butter and mix to cream together, scraping the bowl.

TIPS:
  • Chill the almond cream if you're not going to use it right away.
  • The cherry filling can be made ahead of time and chilled as well.
  • Using a pastry bag to spread the almond cream during assembly of the galette makes it easier to control how much you're putting on the dough.
