In a food processor, chop the almonds until they form a fine meal. Add the flour, sugar and the butter cut into small pieces. Process until it resembles fine crumbs. Add the eggs, and process for a minute or so until a creamy mixture is made. Scrape out of the processor into a bowl. Wrap in clingfilm and store in the fridge. You will need to take it out of the fridge an hour before needed.
