Ingredients

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350° F. Spray a springform pan with baking spray. Combine almond paste and sugar and mix until paste and sugar are small granules. Beat in butter.

  • In another bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt, then add to butter and sugar mixture until combined. Add Greek yogurt and mix well.
