Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons reduced-fat butter
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped pecans, toasted
  • FILLING:
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2-1/4 cups fat-free milk
  • 1 egg yolk, beaten
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 jar (12 ounces) seedless raspberry spreadable fruit

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, beat butter and sugar for 2 minutes or until crumbly. Beat in flour and nuts. Coat a 9-in. fluted tart pan with removable bottom with cooking spray. Press crumb mixture onto the bottom and up the sides of pan. Bake at 425° for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack.

Remove from the heat. 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; gently stir in extract. Pour over crust. Refrigerate until set.
