Ingredients

Crust

1
cup butter, softened
1/2
cup sugar
1
teaspoon almond extract
1
egg
2
cups all-purpose flour
1/4
teaspoon salt

Filling

1/2
cup almond paste, chopped
1/4
cup sugar
1

Directions

  • 1 In large bowl, mix butter and 1/2 cup sugar until well blended. Stir in almond extract and 1 egg. Stir in flour and salt until well mixed. Cover; refrigerate 1 hour if necessary for easier handling.
  • 2 Heat oven to 350°F. In small microwavable bowl, microwave almond paste on High 15 to 20 seconds or until warm. Stir in 1/4 cup sugar until well mixed. Add 1 egg; mix well. (Mixture may be lumpy.)
