Ingredients

  • Ingredients
  • For the shortbread pastry crust
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • 8 tbsp butter cold one stick
  • For the Filling
  • 8 tbsp salted butter= 1 stick softened 
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 8 oz almond paste
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 to 1/3 cup raspberry jam I use 1/3 cup
  • 1/3 cup of flour

Instructions

  • For the shortbread pastry crust
  • Mix together 1 cup of flour, 1/4 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of butter with a pastry cutter until you get coarse crumbs. ( I suppose you could  double the recipe if you want to cover the entire tart pan and have more shortbread crust. This recipe make a thin crust)
  • Add mixture to tart pan and press into bottom and half way up sides.
  • Bake in oven at 350 degrees for 10 minutes
  • Remove from oven, set aside
  • For the Filling
  • In a food processor add butter and mix until creamy
  • Cut almond paste into small cubes and add gradually to butter and mix until smooth
  • Add 1/4 cup of sugar and mix
  • Add two eggs and continue to mix until well incorporated.
  • Stir in 1/3 cup flour
  • To assemble the tart
  • Spread raspberry jam on top of shortbread crust not quite to the edge of the pan ( so the jam does not bubble up over the filling)
  • Add almond batter carefully over the raspberry jam being careful to cover the jam.
  • Sprinkle 1/4 cup of sliced almond on top of the tart
  • Bake in 350 degree oven for 35-40 minutes until filing is set and firm to the touch.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool before serving.
