Almond Shortbread

1 1/8 cups butter
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1 cup cornstarch
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp Hoosier Hill Farm Ground Nutmeg
1/2 cup Hoosier Hill Farm Almond Meal
20 almonds
In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and confectioners' sugar until very light. Gradually add the cornstarch, all purpose flour and nutmeg. Stir until well blended. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead for a few turns. Divide the mixture into 2 parts. Roll each part into a roll about 6 inches (15 cm) long. Wrap the rolls in plastic wrap or wax paper, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. These can be refrigerated for up to 1 week. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets. Unwrap the rolls and slice into 1/2 inch thick slices. Place onto the prepared cookie sheets. Gently press an almond onto the top of each cookie. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven. When cookies are cooled, store in an airtight tin to preserve crispness.

Pear Crisps with Hoosier Hill Farm Dried Tart Cherries

1 cup Hoosier Hill Farm Dried Tart Cherries
Water or fruity red wine, such as a Zinfandel, to cover
8 ripe pears, (about 2 1/4 pounds), peeled, cored, and sliced (5 cups)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon Hoosier Hill Farm Almond Meal
1/4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon Hoosier Hill Farm Ground Nutmeg
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted and cooled to room temperature

In a small saucepan, combine the cherries with enough water or wine (or a combination) to cover them by 2 inches. Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat, then turn off the heat and let cool. Let the cherries soak overnight in the refrigerator, or for at least 8 hours, until they are plump and soft. Drain the cherries, reserving the juices. In a large bowl, combine the pears, drained cherries, and 1/4 cup of the granulated sugar and toss well. Mix in 1/2 of the cherry soaking liquid, or whatever cherry soaking liquid is left plus enough water to make 1/2 cup. Let the mixture stand for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375°F. In a large bowl, whisk together the remaining 1/4 cup of granulated sugar, the flour, almonds, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Slowly drizzle in the butter and stir with a fork until the mixture is crumbly and all the flour is incorporated. Do not allow the mixture to come together in a ball. Break up any large crumbs with your fingers. The crumbs should be smaller than 1 inch in size (otherwise they won't cook all the way through).Spoon the fruit into eight 8-ounce ramekins and place them on a baking sheet. Evenly sprinkle the crumbs on top of the fruit. Bake the crisps until the filling is bubbling and the topping is browned, about 40 minutes. Serve hot or warm.

    Great Product!

    PROMPT delivery! But, the almond meal was too coarse for the macaron recipe. I had to ground it further more to make it extra fine. It's a real nice product though.

    Good product, just what the description said. I thought it would be a finer grind but still works great!

    Haven't tried it yet, but it looks exactly like it is supposed to look, I am sure it is fine. I think next time I am just not going to be so lazy and am going to buy a large bag of almonds and make my own in my food processor!! I am sure it is a lot cheaper!!

    I have used a number of Almond Meals, but this is the best one. Delicious, a uniform grind throughout the container. Will order again.
