Simple and delicious.
This reminds me of a simple Amish Tart.
My favorite jam is Raspberry.
Adapted from a recipe on Food52.
12 TBS butter, softened
1/2 C sugar
1/4 tsp almond extract
1 1/2 C flour
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 C your favorite jam
1/3 C sliced almonds
In a stand mixer with a paddle attachment:
Beat until creamy at least 4 minutes.
Scrape the bowl.
Add almond extract and mix for 30 seconds
Take out 1/2 C of the dough, wrap in plastic wrap and freeze.
Press remaining dough into a 9" pie pan.
Chill for 15 minutes.
Spread jam over the crust.
Remove the dough from the freezer and crumble it over the jam.
Sprinkle the almonds over the crumble.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 - 50 minutes.
Remove and transfer to a cooling rack and cool completely.
Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
Peace in the Kitchen!
