  • 3 tablespoons corn starch
  • 2 tablespoons rice flour
  • 2 cups while milk
  • 1/4 cup Greek honey
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 1/4 cup ground almonds or almond flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground mace or nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup toasted almonds
  • Sifted confectioners’ sugar

Instructions on How to Prepare Greek Style Almond Cream:

Mix together the cornstarch and rice flour in a small bowl using a fork. Stir in 1/4 cup of the milk into a smooth paste forms. Set aside.

Add the rest of the milk to a large saucepan and set the heat to medium. Let the milk warm for a few minutes. You don’t want the milk to boil.

Using a whisk, add the flour and cornstarch paste to the saucepan and whisk vigorously. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for 1 minute.

Pour the mixture into a glass bowl. Whisk in the honey and egg yolk. Stir in the ground almonds and the mace using a wooden spoon.
