8 Servings

Ready In Time 1 hour, 30 minutes

Ingredients

1 cup All Purpose Flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
6 tbsps. Butter Shortening, chilled
1 large egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. 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

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. 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
into 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 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. Yield: 8 servings.

TIP *To toast nuts: Place almonds in dry nonstick skillet; cook over medium heat, shaking pan until nuts are lightly browned.
