Pretty pleasing to the palate and the eye, these petite pies boast a mere six ingredients. And with a pre-made crust, it doesn't get any simpler or tastier than this!
- ½ cup almond paste
- ¼ cup sugar
- ½ teaspoon almond extract
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 package Pillsbury pie crusts
- Slivered almonds
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix the almond paste, sugar, extract and egg well. Use a small food processor if you own one. Otherwise use a dough blender or mash with a spoon.
Place a mini tart pan on the rolled-out dough and use a sharp knife to cut a slightly larger circle around it. Press the dough into the tart pans. Fill the pans about ⅔ full with the almond mixture and top with sliced almonds.
Bake for 20–25 minutes or until golden brown.
