Strawberry Almond Tart (P, KLP)
Source: International Recipes and Food Trivia
Serves: 8

6 eggs, separated (at room temperature)
1 cup almond flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup orange marmalade
2 pints strawberries washed, hulled and halved
2 tablespoons crushed almonds

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Spray a 10" removable bottom tart pan with a non-stick cooking spray.

In a mixing bowl, whip the egg yolks and 1 tablespoon of water on high speed until thick and lemon colored, about 5 minutes. Fold the almond flour into the yolks.

In a clean bowl, whip the egg whites and sugar until medium peaks form, about 2 to 3 minutes. Add a large tablespoon of the whites into the egg yolk mixture to loosen it and fold the remaining egg whites into the mixture and mix until just combined.

Pour the batter into the prepared tart pan. Bake until the edges are golden brown, about 5 to 8 minutes.

Cool for 15 minutes. Remove from the pan and place on a rack to finish cooling.

In the microwave, warm the orange marmalade until it is runny and brush the top of the tart with half of it.

Lay the strawberries on the glaze in concentric circles, mounding them in the middle of the tart.

Glaze the strawberries and the edge of the tart with the remaining orange marmalade glaze. Sprinkle with almonds.

Poster's Notes:
Strawberries are on sale at my Safeway this week and this sounds just yummy. I have priced almond flour (which is essentially ground blanched almonds) and come to the conclusion that it would be cheaper to make my own. I will unfortunately not be spending Passover with my family this year but I'll send this recipe to my sister to be my contribution to dinner.
