Almond paste topped with the sweetness and crunch of caramelized, glazed almond bits - Swedish Almond Tart simply delivers a luxurious taste of ALMOND in every bite!
- 1 pc 8-inch pie/tart dough
- Almond Paste (see below)
- 100 grams almonds, slivered/sliced
- 75 grams butter, unsalted
- 75 grams cream
- 50 grams sugar
- 50 grams golden syrup
- butter, for greasing pan
In a small pan, combine almonds, butter, cream, sugar and syrup. Bring to a slow boil and let the sugar completely dissolve. Keep the heat on medium-low and stir occasionally to make sure that it does not burn. Take off the heat once the sauce has thickened a bit.
Preheat oven to 180 degrees C (375 degrees F).
Grease an 8-inch pan and arrange the pie/tart dough on it.
Pour the almond paste on top of the pie/tart dough and place in the oven for around 20 minutes or until the paste and the dough has browned a bit.
Take out of the oven and spread the glazed almonds on top of the tart. Put back in the oven and cook for 15-20 minutes or until the top turns golden.
Set aside to cool. Serve.
