Cooking with Almond Flour

Cooking with Almond Flour

My childhood in France was punctuated with much fun, joy and delicious pleasures. I especially loved January, because it's the time of the year when Epiphany is celebrated with la galette des Rois, or king's cake. For those who don't know, epiphany is a Christian holiday that celebrates the Magi visiting baby Jesus. January 6th is the official day of Epiphany, but in France, we usually celebrate it on the Sunday between the 2nd and the 8th.

I just stocked up my kitchen with almond flour for the delicious occasion, so little Aria gets to experience the same delights. I know I'm going to have a lot of leftover almond flour, so I went through all the recipes creatively utilizing the special ingredient for you to see.

Almond flour is also a great alternative for gluten-free cooking. My mother-in-law discovered later in life that she has celiac disease, and almond is a great substitute in recipes. My tip for a longer shelf life is to store almond flour in the freezer. And not only does it make delicious desserts, almond flour is a great thickener for savory sauces. Isn't that sweet?
