Raspberry Almond Tart Recipe

Ingredients

1-1/3 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 cup sugar, divided

1 cup cold butter, divided

3 large eggs

1/2 cup raspberry jam, divided

1 cup ground almonds

1/2 teaspoon almond extract

1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar

2 to 2-1/2 teaspoons lemon juice

How to make it

In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and 1/3 cup sugar; cut in 1/2 cup butter until crumbly. Beat 1 egg; add to flour mixture, tossing with a fork until dry ingredients are moistened. Press dough evenly onto bottom and up the sides of a 9-in. tart pan with removable bottom. Spread 1/4 cup of jam over dough. Cover with a plastic wrap and refrigerate.

Meanwhile, cream remaining butter and sugar until light and fluffy; stir in almonds and extract. Add remaining eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition; spoon filling over jam. Place tart pan on a baking sheet.

Bake at 350° for 50-55 minutes or until set. Cool in pan on a wire rack. Carefully remove sides from pan. Spread remaining jam on top. Combine confectioners’ sugar and lemon juice; drizzle over the top.
Yield: 10-12 servings.
