TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 15 min. + chilling YIELD:2 servings


  • 1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin
  • 1/2 cup cold 2% milk, divided
  • 4 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • Dash salt
  • 1 egg yolk, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • CRUST:
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 4 teaspoons confectioners' sugar
  • 3/4 cup fresh raspberries


  • 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.
  • 2. Stir a small amount of hot filling into egg yolk; return all to the pan, stirring constantly. Bring to a gentle boil; 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.
