- 1 cup almond flour
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
- 1 cup fresh raspberries
- 2 tablespoons raspberry jam
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
- 1/4 cup sliced almonds
- Powdered sugar for dusting
- In a food processor, combine almond flour, granulated sugar, salt, and butter. Pulse until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
- Press the mixture into the bottom of a tart pan, forming an even layer. Place the pan in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
- In a saucepan, combine fresh raspberries, raspberry jam, lemon juice, and almond extract. Cook over medium heat, stirring gently, until the raspberries break down and the mixture thickens. Remove from heat and let it cool slightly.
- Pour the raspberry filling onto the chilled crust and spread it evenly.
- Sprinkle sliced almonds over the raspberry filling.
- Bake the tart in a preheated oven at 350°F (175°C) for 25-30 minutes, or until the crust is golden and the almonds are toasted.
