1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter softened

1 2/3 cups powdered sugar

2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Heavy Whipping Cream

1/4 teaspoon almond extract

1 tablespoon light corn syrup

2 (1-ounce) squares unsweetened baking chocolate, melted, cooled

1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F.

    Combine coconut, sugar and egg whites in bowl; mix well.

    Beat butter in another bowl at medium speed until creamy. Continue beating, gradually adding powdered sugar alternately with whipping cream and almond extract and scraping bowl often, until light and fluffy. Add corn syrup; mix well. Stir in melted chocolate.

I sprayed my tins with a flour spray and the tarts browned nicely and about fell out of the tins. Served them at a Valentine Tea and guests were so impressed that I had made them !!!! will definitely make them again and will share the recipe with Grand daughter who love to bake. Love L.O.L. recipes.
