    I love the addition of almond extract. That’s what I replaced the vanilla
    extract with in the chocolate crust of your chocolate salted caramel tart
    recipe. I think it gave the crust such an amazing flavor with the
    chocolate. Also, I appreciate you always having the metric measurements so
    I don’t have to use an online converter, haha
