Ingredients

2/3 cup water
1 egg
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup dry milk powder
1/4 cup sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast

Preparation

  1. Measuring carefully, place all dough ingredients in bread machine pan in order specified by owner's manual. Program dough cycle setting; press start.
  2. Meanwhile, combine almond paste, 3 eggs and 1 cup sugar in blender or food processor. Cover; process until combined. Set aside. Grease 9-inch round baking pan; set aside.
  3. When dough cycle is complete, remove dough to lightly floured surface. If necessary, knead in additional all-purpose flour to make dough easy to handle. Pat dough into 9-inch circle and press into and 1/2-inch up side of prepared pan.
