  1. In a bowl cream the eggs with the sugar.
  2. In a seperate bowl mix the flour with the baking powder.
  3. Add some flour/baking powder to the egg mixture and combine, then add some of the cream and continue that way, alternating between the two, mix until you have a smooth dough.

  6. Meanwhile mix the melted butter, almonds, milk and sugar.
