Premium Baked Goods Made with Almonds
 
Extra rich, magically moist and naturally buttery in flavor, fresh baked goods made with almond flour are a pastry gourmet’s dream. At nearly 15-times the cost of wheat or rice flour, it’s no wonder that cakes and cookies baked with almond flour taste better, last longer, and remain much more moist than fresh bakes made with conventional or other gluten free ingredients.

Tree Fruit.  Not Tree Nut.  The Almond Family Tree!

The amazing almond { Prunus dulcis } is a member of the Rosaceae (rose) family, along with many other tree fruits such as peaches, apples, pears, plums, cherries, and apricots. Within the genus Prunus, the almond is most closely related to the peach, and the two crops share the subgenus Amygdalus. The almond tree is native to the Middle East and South Asia.

The fruit of the almond is not a true nut, but a drupe — consisting of an outer hull and a hard shell with the seed or "nut" inside. Blanched almonds are shelled almonds that have been treated with hot water to soften the seed-coat, which is then removed to reveal the white embryo we all know and love.
