Cartucce (literally "cartridges")

They are the cartridges that no longer exist, in any pastry they make them like the ones I ate as a child; I tried several recipes, and from the many changes this recipe was born, which I hope to transcribe faithfully.ingredients: 
  • 200 g of almond flour
  • 100 g of flour
  • 50 g of starch 
  • 200 g of sugar 
  • 160 g of soft butter
  • 20 g melted butter
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 1 pinch of ammonia 
  •  pinch of salt
  • 3 drops of bitter almond
  • 1 grated lemon peel
Preparation: Mix the almond flour with 2 beaten eggs and herbs, let it rest at room temperature for 1 hour.To work the soft butter with the sugar and the ammonia, to join the mixture of eggs and almond flour, one spoon at a time, alternating with the other 2 beaten eggs; mix with a spoon and add the melted butter, then add the two sifted flour, little by little. At the end you will have to get a plum cake dough. Let it rest for 1 hour at room temperature. Transfer the dough into a sac à poche with a smooth nozzle and 1 cm in diameter. Squeeze the mixture into the torches lined with the maps filling them up to the edge of the torch because they rise during baking.Bake at 170 degrees for 10 minutes then lower to 160 degrees and continue for another 8/10 minutes. The cooking should be checked according to the oven you have, I recommend to bake just a couple and see how long they cook, at the end of cooking should remain clear, removing the map and slightly more colorful on the capoccetta. Remove them from the torch by pulling them from the map.Roll them on absorbent paper to remove the gassing on the maps.
