Ingredients for crust:

1/4 cup of Granulated Sugar

1 egg

1/4 cup Butter

1 cup flour

1/2 tsp Baking Powder


Ingredients for Almond Filling:

1 1/4 cup Honey Roasted Almonds

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup butter

2 oz of whole Milk



Step 1:

In a small bowl mix the egg and sugar until creamy. Add the butter,  flour and the baking powder and mix well

Mold the mixture into the bottom of a greased 10 inch tart pan. Cook for 10 min at 350 degrees and set aside.

Step 2 : Meanwhile make the filling.

Place all filling ingredients in a saucepan and cook for 5 minutes until creamy. Pour the filling on top of the crust and bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown.

I suggest serving the tart with some Strawberries and Champagne!
