TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Cook: 15 min. + chilling YIELD:12 servings


  • 3 tablespoons reduced-fat butter
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped pecans, toasted
  • 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
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh raspberries


  • 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.
  • 2. In a small saucepan, combine sugar and flour. Stir in 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 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.
  • 3. In a small bowl, whisk fruit spread until smooth; spread over filling. Garnish with raspberries. Yield: 12 servings.

"Light and delicious spring dessert! I didn't have a tart pan so I made mine in a shallow pie dish. Everyone loved the nutty crust and raspberry finish. I may decrease the almond extract next time but overall a very nice dessert especially when garnished with fresh raspberries."

"My crust did not cover the pan like I would have liked it to. My pudding was slightly rubbery, but everyone loved it otherwise. The taste was great."
