Remarks
You can use Parmesan instead of the Mimolette, or another hard-paste cheese, such as Cheddar or Comté.

Similarly, the almonds can be replaced with pine nuts or walnuts, but it is important to try and keep them crunchy, so do be sure to toast them.
Keeping
1 or 2 days in the fridge, covered with plastic film.
