Sometimes named Almond Cream, this almond filling is baked in tarts, tartlets or puff pastry dough. You can vary the flavor by adding, for example, small amounts of currants, grated chocolate or fine-chopped candied citron. You can substitute another nut for the traditional almond or even fold in a soft meringue before baking for a change in texture.

It is the filling for Papillon.
