• 4 large eggs
• 1 cup sliced almonds, toasted
• 1 cup almond flour
• 1 cup heavy cream
• 1/2 cup powdered sugar

. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). In a saucepan, bring water and butter to a boil. Stir in flour until the mixture forms a ball. Remove from heat.
. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Continue beating until the dough is smooth and shiny.
. Pipe or spoon the dough into a ring shape on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle toasted sliced almonds over the top.
. Bake for 15 minutes, then reduce the oven temperature to 375°F (190°C) and continue baking for an additional 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Allow it to cool completely.
. For the almond flour cream filling, whip heavy cream, powdered sugar, almond flour, almond extract, and a pinch of salt until stiff peaks form.
. Once the Paris-Brest is cooled, slice it in half horizontally and fill it generously with the almond flour cream.
. Place the top half back on and sprinkle with additional toasted almond flakes and dust of powdered sugar.

Serve and savor the almond-infused bliss of this Paris-Brest creation!
