Directions

  1. In a small wide-bottom bowl, sprinkle gelatin over 1 tablespoon milk; let stand for 2 minutes. In a small saucepan, combine sugar, flour and salt. Gradually whisk in remaining milk until smooth. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat; cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Remove from the heat.

Stir a small amount of hot liquid into gelatin mixture. Stir until gelatin is dissolved; return to pan. Gently stir in extract. Cover and cool to room temperature without stirring, about 30 minutes.
  3. For crust, in a small bowl, combine flour, sugar and salt; blend in butter with a wooden spoon until smooth. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of two 4-in. tart pans with removable bottoms coated with cooking spray.
  4. Bake at 375° for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
  5. In a small bowl, beat cream until it begins to thicken. Add confectioners' sugar; beat until soft peaks form. Fold into filling mixture. Spoon into tart shells. Cover and chill for at least 1 hour. Top with raspberries. Yield: 2 servings.
