Swedish Toscas (Swedish Almond Tarts) Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 2)
Reviewed: May 25, 2010
pretty good, but not the AMAZING dessert I was hoping for. Maybe more almond flavour would have been nice, like some almond extract. The crust was a nice shortbread crust, which everyone likes. I would give it a 4 1/2 stars just because its really good, but not perfect. Thanks for the recipe!

These are very tasty and not difficult to make. I followed the recipe to the letter with one exception: my almonds were sliced rather than slivered. To avoid problems removing the tarts from the pan, run a butter knife around each one after removing from the oven. After the recommended cooling time they pop right out. Thanks for a tasty recipe!

I was looking for a great crust recipe for mini tart crusts and this is it! A few additional suggestions for this recipe: Getting tarts out of a tart pan can be frustrating. I even made this great crust in mini tart pans which are expecially a problem. Be sure to spray your pans with a non stick cooking spray. Otherwise, you will not be able to remove the tarts without breaking. Also, I always put my crusts in the freezer for about five minutes, right before baking. This allows the butter to get cold and then the hot burst from the oven makes the crust puff much better so the crust is not crackly.

I didn't make the filling for this dessert, but the crust was so unbelievably delicious, the best tart crust I have ever had
