1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons sliced almonds
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup cold Land O Lakes® Unsalted Butter, cut into chunks
1/8 teaspoon almond extract


1 1/4 cups sugar
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups sliced almonds, toasted


Spray 9-inch tart pan with removable sides with no-stick cooking spray; set aside.

Place flour, powdered sugar, 2 tablespoons almonds and salt in food processor. Pulse until almonds are ground. Add butter and almond extract. Pulse until dough comes together in large clumps.

Transfer dough to prepared pan; press dough onto bottom and up sides of pan. Pierce bottom and sides of dough with fork. Cover; freeze 15 minutes.

Heat oven to 425ºF.

Place tart pan onto baking sheet; bake crust 10 minutes. Remove from oven; place pan onto cooling rack.

Reduce oven to 400ºF.

Combine sugar and water in 2-quart saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, 10-15 minutes or until sugar is dissolved.

Increase heat to medium-high. Cook 10-13 minutes, without stirring, until mixture comes to a boil or until sugar begins to caramelize and is deep golden brown in color.

Reduce heat to low. Slowly whisk in 2/3 cup whipping cream until smooth. Add 2 tablespoons butter, honey and vanilla. Whisk until combined. Stir in toasted almonds. 

Pour caramel mixture into prepared crust.  Bake 9-11 minutes or until entire filling bubbles. Cool completely on cooling rack.  Remove tart from pan.

Serve with whipped cream, if desired.

Recipe Tip

To toast almonds, spread in single layer on ungreased 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Bake at 350°F., stirring occasionally, 5-10 minutes or until light golden brown. Remove from pan; cool completely.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

i have made this twice now. It tastes amazing, however the directions needed some tweeking!!!!
cold butter did not work at all, I have to use room temp or warm butter. Also it you leave you almonds in the oven at that temp for 5 minutes they will be burnt. I say two minutes at the most.
