My grandmother gave me her signature lattice-topped tart recipe. The bubbling raspberry preserves, citrus and nuts fill our home with aromas that bring back warm memories. —Michael Compean, Los Angeles, California

Prep: 30 min. + chilling Bake: 30 min.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange peel
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup ground hazelnuts or blanched almonds
  • 1/4 cup ground pecans
  • 1/4 cup ground walnuts
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1-1/3 cups triple berry preserves
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Confectioners' sugar, optional

Directions

In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg yolks and citrus peels; mix well. Combine the flour, nuts, cinnamon, baking powder, salt and cloves; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix just until moistened.
Divide dough in half and flatten each into a thick rectangle. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill until firm, at least 2 hours or overnight.
Press one portion of dough onto the bottom and up the sides of a lightly greased 14-in. x 4-in. fluted tart pan with removable bottom. Cover and refrigerate for about 10 minutes.
Combine preserves and lemon juice; spread over crust. Roll remaining dough between two pieces of parchment paper. Make a lattice crust. Trim edges.
Bake at 350° for 30-35 min. or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Cool on a wire rack. Dust with confectioners' sugar before serving if desired. Yield: 12 servings.
Editor's Note: You may use a greased 9-in. round fluted tart pan with removable bottom instead of a 14-in. x 4-in. pan. Bake as directed.
