A family friend, who has just turned 101 years old, used to make these. They taste absolutely heavenly. So smooth and creamy.

Hi, Would this recipe work if the bean puree was replaced with more almond flour? or if the amounts were reversed? The idea of bean puree just doesn't appeal to me.

I'm not sure Fred, but I definetely think it wouldn't turn out the same.
