In a high-powered blender (like the Vitamix), blend the almonds, lemon juice, 6 Tbsp of olive oil, garlic, and salt until very smooth. Alternatively, you can use a food processor, processing as long as is necessary.
Preheat oven to 200F. Line baking pan with parchment paper. Spoon the cheese onto the parchment and shape into a disk approximately ¾-inch thick.
Bake for approximately 40 minutes or until the top is stiff and dry. Cool and chill if you would like to serve it cold, or for a warm cheese dish, immediately top with the remaining olive oil and sprinkle with herbs.
