Ingredients:

Crust

  • 1/2 cup (99g) sugar
  • 8 tablespoons (113g) butter, softened
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 1/2 cups (177g) King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  • 3/4 cup (72g) almond flour or finely ground sliced or slivered almonds

Filling

  • 4 tablespoons (57g) butter, softened
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (198g) sugar
  • 2 tablespoons (14g) King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups (120g) almond flour or finely ground sliced or slivered almonds

Glaze

  • 1 cup (113g) confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 tablespoons (28g) milk
  • raspberries, for garnish

Instructions:

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • To make the crust: Beat together the sugar, butter, salt, and extracts.
  • Add the flours, stirring to make crumbs that cling together when squeezed.
  • Press the crumbs into the bottom and up the sides of six 4 1/2″ mini tart pans (or a full-size tart pan; see tips, at left); prick them all over with a fork.
  • Freeze the crusts for 15 minutes, then bake them until they’re just beginning to brown on the edges, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool while you make the filling.
  • To make the filling: Beat together the butter, salt, sugar, flour, and extracts.
  • Beat in the eggs, then add the almond flour, stirring just to combine. Spread the filling into the crusts.
