Austrian nut-flour pastries

Once, many years ago, I was browsing in the local cookbook shop and came across a book about Austrian nut-flour pastries. Oddly (to my mind) the main theme of the cover was that this book contained gluten-free baking recipes. Anyway, I can't track down any trace of this book. Does anybody recognise it?

I'd be very happy to hear recommendations for other nut-flour pastry books!

you might try searching for tortes, as they are known. Austrian baking is vast, but many different European recipes use nut flours (almond, chestnut, pistachio) for cake-type and tart-like baked goods (Torta di Castagnaccio form Italy, Linzertorte, etc.)

ABE books has it for considerably less: see it here.

"There are, it has been said, two types of people in the world. There are those who say: this glass is half full. And then there are those who say: this glass is half empty. The world belongs, however, to those who can look at the glass and say: What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!" Terry Pratchett
