Swedish Visiting Cake

From Dorie Greenspan's
Baking From My Home to Yours

Very easy to make and tastes of vanilla, almonds and lemon. Its supposed to be made in a cast iron skillet but I made it in a springform pan. Middle is a little thin but otherwise looks and tastes good - like a chewy almond cookie.
