Quicker Baked Potato

Try this method for speeding up the potato baking process (for a better texture than those that you microwave). Pre-heat the oven to 400. Place the potato in boiling water for 10 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes. This will cut the cooking time in half.

1/4 cup finely chopped almonds
1 1/4 cup flour; sifted
1/2 cup sugar
1 dash salt
1/2 cup butter; cut into 1/2 cubes
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
----LEMON CURD----
10 egg yolks
3/4 cup sugar (or more)
3/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup butter
1 sweetened whipped cream
1 fresh fruit

Mix almonds, flour, 1/2 cup sugar and salt in bowl. Rub butter pieces, bit by bit, into flour. Stir in egg and vanilla to form ball. Chill. Roll out onto 12-inch tart pan with removable bottom.
