Almond Butter Slices

Recipe Source: Dr. Oetker A-Z Backen
Almonds are high in monounsaturated fats, the same type of health-promoting fats as are found in olive oil, which have been associated with reduced risk of heart disease.
In addition to their cholesterol-lowering effects, almonds' ability to reduce heart disease risk may also be partly due to the antioxidant action of the vitamin E found in the almonds, as well as to the LDL-lowering effect of almonds' monounsaturated fats. (LDL is the form of cholesterol that has been linked to atherosclerosis and heart disease). When almonds are substituted for more traditional fats in human feeding trials, LDL cholesterol can be reduced from 8 to 12%.
In addition to healthy fats and vitamin E, a quarter-cup of almonds contains almost 99 mg of magnesium (that's 24.7% of the daily value for this important mineral), plus 257 mg of potassium. World's Healthiest Foods
Dough: Topping:
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Line a 30x40cm baking tray with paper. Combine the sugar, vanilla sugar and almond slices for the topping in a bowl. Set aside.
  2. Sift the flour and baking powder into a mixing bowl. Add in Quark, milk, oil, sugar and salt. Mix all the ingredients with a hand mixer fitted with dough hooks for 1 minute on high speed. Don’t over stir the dough or it will become sticky.
  3. Place the dough onto the prepared tray and roll it out. Spread the softened butter all over the surface of the dough. Spead the topping mixture evenly onto the dough. Bake on the upper rack of the hot oven for about 20 minutes until golden crispy.
