Notes

  1. A food processor may help you mix the dough better if you would rather not use your hands
  2. If the dough is too sticky add a bit more almond flour about 2 Tablespoons.
  3. It's important to let the dough rest. It's a lot easier to handle when it's not warm. You can pop it into the refrigerator for about 15 mins if you have time on your hands.
