Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup raspberry jam
  • Powdered sugar for dusting

Instructions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour and salt. Add the cold, cubed butter and use a pastry cutter to blend until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  2. Sprinkle cold water over the mixture and stir until the dough comes together. Divide the dough in half, shape each half into a disc, and wrap in plastic wrap. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Roll out one disc of dough on a floured surface and line a greased 9×9-inch (23×23 cm) baking pan with it.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix together the almond flour, sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract. Spread this mixture evenly over the dough in the pan.
  5. Warm the raspberry jam slightly and then spread it over the almond mixture.
  6. Roll out the second disc of dough and place it over the raspberry jam layer. Trim any excess dough and crimp the edges to seal the pastry.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until the pastry is golden brown.
  8. Allow the pastry to cool completely, then dust with powdered sugar. Slice into squares and serve.
