This pithiviers, a French specialty from the Orléans region, is made from puff pastry and frangipane (rich almond paste).

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Combine butter and sugar in a bowl and beat with an electric mixer until well combined.

Add almond flour 2 egg yolks and rum; mix until frangipane is smooth.

Roll out puff pastry sheets and cut into 2 equal circles.

Place the first circle on the baking sheet and pierce several times with a fork.

Spread frangipane on the circle leaving a 1/2 inch border.

Brush uncovered puff pastry edge with a little water and lay the second puff pastry circle on top.

Seal the edges by pressing together.
