This week's pick was made by Holly of Phe/MOM/enon. Another great pick this week that I would not have tried otherwise if it were not for this great group! The torte is very rich and would definitely remedy a chocolate craving. I thought it was really good warm. I smelled so good out of the oven that I couldn't wait for it to cool or for the glaze to cool. I think this would be really good with some vanilla ice cream or a tall glass of ice cold milk. YUM!
Of course I didn't follow the recipe exactly because I rarely do. I don't have a food processor so I think that my almonds were in larger pieces than they were supposed to be. I didn't have any Amaretti so I used some glutten free pecan shortbread cookies so that my friend could have some too. For the glaze I didn't want to use the heavy cream called for so I just used whole milk. I think that could explain why my glaze was more like chocolate milk. My torte ended up sitting in a pool of glaze. Not very attractive but so good when I spooned the glaze over slices of the torte.
