Recipe Tips

- Roll out pastry on lightly floured surface into 12-inch circle. Place in ungreased 9-inch round tart pan with removable bottom. Prick and bake as directed.

- Baked pastry with almond filling can be made ahead, wrapped and frozen for several days, if desired. Top with whipped cream just before serving.

- To toast almonds, spread evenly in shallow pan. Bake at 350°F, stirring once, 4-6 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely.
