Ingredients +for the base and the streusel: °230 g + 5 tablespoons unsalted butter cut into pieces °150 g powdered sugar °40g icing sugar °1/2 teaspoon of salt °2 lightly beaten egg yolks °1/2 teaspoon almond extract °350g + 3 tbsp all-purpose flour +for the strawberry filling: °525 g of strawberries °135g caster sugar or more if needed °60ml fresh lemon juice °3 teaspoons cornstarch °2 tablespoons water Optional

*Instructions


Butter a 22x33 cm mold (I used a slightly larger mold) or line with parchment paper, leaving a slight surplus along the edges.

Prepare the filling:

In a large saucepan, combine the strawberry pieces, sugar, lemon juice, cornstarch and water (if using).


Mix well.


Boil the water.


Once it begins to boil, reduce the heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally, until the liquid turns into a thick syrup (about 8-10 minutes).


Remove the pan from the heat and let cool to room temperature. {Note:. It will continue to thicken as it cools}


Let set and cool for about 40 minutes.

Prepare the dough:


In a large saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Increase heat to medium and, stirring occasionally, cook butter until golden brown and develops a nutty aroma. Depending on the heat of the fire, it may take 5-8 minutes. During this process, the butter will first become frothy before changing color, making it difficult to see what is going on. Just be sure to give it a peek once in a while so the butter doesn't burn.


Once it's gorgeous and fragrant, remove the pan from the heat and pour the butter into a heatproof bowl. Let cool to room temperature.


In a large bowl, combine the cooled hazelnut butter, 150 powdered sugar and the salt.


Stir until smooth.

Add egg yolks and almond extract, whisk until smooth.


Using a large spatula or wooden spoon, add flour until you have a stiff dough.


Transfer about 2/3 of the batter to the baking pan lined with parchment paper and press down evenly on the bottom.


Refrigerate the dough for about 40 minutes.


Enjoy !
