Amandine from Sainte-Croix

Created by an artisan dessert-maker from Sainte-Croix, in the Nord vaudois, Amandine is a fine example of local culinary know-how. Made with almonds, honey, cream and sugar, this tart is an ideal gift and holiday souvenir!

The music box capital of Sainte-Croix has another coveted bit of know-how: the exclusive recipe for Amandine. This delicious tart made of honey, sugar, cream and almonds on a sweet pastry base was invented by the artisan dessert-maker from “La Gourmandine”. The same recipe is still used today by the heirs of this mouth-watering shop, who do admit to a secret little trick.

Easy to carry, the tart keeps for a month which, along with its delicious taste, makes this the ideal gift to take home in your suitcase after a visit to Sainte-Croix.
