Prep: 30 mins

Bake: 40 mins

Ingredients
  • 1 sheet refrigerated piecrust
  • 1 cup blanched almonds, toasted
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 stalks rhubarbpeeled, 1 stalk halved lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 3-inch pieces, 1 stalk chopped
  • 1 pint raspberries
  • Confectioners' sugar, for dusting
Directions
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees . Roll out the piecrust to an 11-inch round and transfer to a 9-inch tart pan with a removable bottom. Carefully press the dough into the sides and bottom of the pan, trimming to remove any excess dough. Using a fork, prick the bottom of the tart crust; refrigerate for 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, using a food processor, pulse the almonds with 1/4 cup sugar until finely ground. Pulse in the flour and salt for another minute. Using an electric mixer, beat the butter with the remaining 1/4 cup sugar until fluffy and pale yellow, about 3 minutes. Beat in the eggs, 1 at a time, along with the vanilla. Gradually beat in the flour-almond mixture.
  3. Pour about one-quarter of the batter into the chilled tart crust and spread evenly; top with the chopped rhubarb. Pour in the remaining batter; arrange the rhubarb lengths and raspberries decoratively on top and press into the batter. Bake until the tart has puffed up and browned, 35 to 40 minutes. Let cool completely, about 1 hour. Dust with the confectioners' sugar before serving.
