Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Spray a 9-inch round tart pan with removable bottom with no-stick cooking spray.
  3. Finely chop the almonds in a food processor. Add flour and sugar, pulsing to combine. Separate one egg; set aside egg white.
  4. Add egg yolk, remaining whole egg, butter, lemon peel and almond extract to flour mixture. Process or mix until dough forms a ball.
  5. Remove scant 1/3 of dough. Flatten, wrap and refrigerate for at least 1/2 hour or until manageable. Press remaining dough in bottom and 1-inch up sides of the prepared tart pan. Spread 1/2 cup apricot preserves evenly over dough.
  6. Roll remaining dough on floured surface or between sheets of waxed paper, into a 9 1/2 x 5-inch rectangle. Cut into ten (1/2-inch-wide) strips. Place one strip across center of torte. Place second strip on each side, about 2 inches in from edge. Repeat in other direction. Place a strip between center and edge strips in each direction. Press strips to edge. Trim off evenly with knife or pastry wheel. Brush strips with reserved egg white.
  7. Spoon remaining apricot preserves and raspberry preserves in alternate spaces between strips.
  8. Bake 30 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Cool 10 minutes. Remove sides of pan. Serve warm or cool.

I am German (although this is a Austrian tart) ha ha....but jokes aside.., it works fantastic as is...no tweeking...you can however add all sorts of nuts to this recipe but not the very fatty ones like macadamian etc. Great success at work!

fantastic flavors and easy to make except for the lattice. I have a horrible time trying to get the thickness ect. Clumsy I guess. I cut out hearts or other shapes depending on the holiday and place them around.
