Directions

  1. Spray 9-inch tart pan with removable sides with no-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Place flour, powdered sugar, 2 tablespoons almonds, and salt in food processor bowl fitted with metal blade. Pulse until almonds are ground. Add butter and almond extract. Pulse until dough comes together in large clumps.

  5. Place tart pan onto baking sheet. Bake crust 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Place pan onto cooling rack.

  7. Combine sugar and water in 2-quart saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, 10-15 minutes or until sugar is dissolved.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Pour caramel mixture into prepared crust. Bake 9-11 minutes or until entire filling bubbles. Cool completely on cooling rack. Remove tart from pan.

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.
