    Directions

    1. Mix together the nuts, sugar, liqueur, and milk. A soft mixture should form but not one that seeps liquid. If that happens, add a little more nuts or sugar.
    2. The next day, start by making the dough. Whisk together the butter, wine, and egg yolk.
    3. Separately, whisk together the salt, baking powder, and flours.
