Butterscotch Berry Tart

Yield

12 servings

Ingredients

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup granulated (white) sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons butter flavored shortening, chilled
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 cup slivered almonds, toasted*, plus 2 tablespoons, divided
1/2 cup seedless red raspberry jam, plus 2 tablespoons, divided
1/2 cup butterscotch spoonable ice cream topping, plus 2 tablespoons, divided
5 cups fresh berries, quartered if large, such as strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Combine flour, sugar and salt in processor; blend 10 seconds. Add shortening, blending until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add egg, vanilla and almond extracts. Process until moist clumps form, turning mixer on/off to scrape sides.

Gather dough into ball and, using floured fingertips, press dough onto bottom and up sides of 9-inch tart pan with removeable bottom.

Press 1/2 cup almonds over bottom of crust. Spread 1/2 cup jam over almonds; spread 1/2 cup butterscotch topping over jam.

Bake tart until crust is golden at edges and jam is thick and bubbly, about 40 minutes. Cool completely on wire cooling rack. Push up pan bottom to release tart.

Toss berries with remaining 2 tablespoons jam in bowl to coat. Top tart with berries; sprinkle remaining 2 tablespoons almonds around edge of tart. Drizzle additional 2 tablespoons butterscotch over top.

Estimated Time

Total Time: 1 hour 30 minutes
