2 cups blanched almonds
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup (1/8 lb.) melted butter or margarine
1/2 cup seedless raspberry jam
2/3 cup whipping cream
8 ounces white chocolate, chopped
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
2 1/4 cups red raspberries, rinsed and drained
2 cups golden raspberries, rinsed and drained (or use red raspberries)
1 tablespoon almond-flavor liqueur


1. In a blender or food processor, whirl almonds with 2 tablespoons sugar until finely ground; if using a blender, whirl half of the mixture at a time.

4. Spread crust bottom with jam. Cool on a rack.

5. In a 1- to 2-quart pan over medium heat, stir cream and chocolate until smoothly melted, about 2 minutes. Stir in lemon juice and almond extract. Evenly spoon into crust.

6. Chill tart until filling is firm to touch, 1 to 1 1/4 hours.

7. Arrange red raspberries in a single layer on filling.

8. In a blender or food processor, whirl golden raspberries, remaining 2 tablespoons sugar, and liqueur until smoothly puréed. Press mixture through a fine strainer into a bowl; discard seeds. Evenly spread golden raspberry sauce in center of dessert plates.

9. Remove pan rim. Cut tart into wedges and place a wedge in sauce on each plate.
