This is one of my dad's favourites, so whenever I do it it always reminds me of [my first] home. Recently, my dad - who is as handy in the kitchen as I am changing a flat tire - has tried different varieties: with walnuts instead of almonds, with walnuts and almonds, with any kind on nuts with or without almonds... I must confess I prefer the original version. The walnut gives it a touch of bitterness which I can set aside for my Monday mornings.
Beat 3 eggs, 2 cups of sugar and 1 cup of milk. Heat the mixture in the oven until it thickens. When it gets a creamy texture, add 1 cup of almonds in their skin [believe me: the taste of the skin is important for this treat].
Divide it in little individual bowls like the one in the photo. Sprinkle the bowls with sliced toasted almonds.
Let it cool and finally it's ready to eat.
