- 1/2 cup(s) sliced almonds (skins on)
- 6 tablespoon(s) granulated sugar
- 1 1/3 cup(s) all-purpose flour, divided
- 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
- 6 tablespoon(s) cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/4-inch pieces
- 1 large egg yolk
- 1 teaspoon(s) vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon(s) almond extract
- 4 1/2 cup(s) fresh or frozen (not thawed) raspberries
- 1 teaspoon(s) confectioners’ sugar
- Preheat oven to 400°F. Lightly coat a 9-inch removable-bottom tart pan with cooking spray.
- Combine almonds and sugar in a food processor; pulse until the almonds are finely ground and incorporated with the sugar. Set aside 1/2 cup of the mixture.
- Add 1 1/3 cups flour and salt to the remaining sugar mixture and pulse briefly to blend. With the motor running, add butter a few pieces at a time until well incorporated.
- Stir egg yolk, vanilla and almond extracts together in a small bowl until blended. With the motor running, add to the processor and pulse until the mixture begins to clump and form a dough, about 1 minute (the mixture will look like crumbly sand). Set aside 1/3 cup of the mixture for the topping.
- Transfer the remaining dough to the prepared tart pan; spread evenly and press firmly into the bottom and up the sides to form a crust.
- Add the remaining 2 tablespoons flour to the reserved almond mixture; stir to blend. Gently toss raspberries with 2 tablespoons of this mixture in a medium bowl until coated. Spread the berries evenly in the tart pan. Sprinkle the remaining almond mixture over the berries. Pinch the reserved dough into small clumps to make crumbs and sprinkle the crumbs on top of the berries.
- Bake the tart for 15 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees and bake until the crust and crumbs are golden brown, about 45 minutes more. Let cool on a wire rack for about 30 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature. Remove the pan sides; place confectioners’ sugar in a fine sieve and dust the tart just before serving.
