Recipe Directions for Cranberry, Almond, Cinnamon Tart

  1. Make preserves: Pulse 2 c. cranberries in food processor until medium-coarsely chopped. Add chopped cranberries and 2 c. sugar to saucepan with 2 oz. water. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Boil until it reaches 220 degrees F. Put in prepared jar and let cool.

  2. Make Pate Sucree: Use ingredients at top of list. Pulse flour, sugar, and salt in food processor until combined. Add butter and process until mixture resemmbles course meal, about 10 seconds. Lightly beat yolk with ice water. With processor running, add yolk mixture in a slow, steady stream through the feed tube, and process until dough just holds together (no longer than 30 seconds.) Turn out onto work surface, and shape into a disk. Wrap in plastic, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour (or up to 2 days,) or freeze for up to 1 month.

  3. Make sugared whole cranberries: Put fresh, whole cranberries, 1/3 c. sugar, and 1 tbsp. water in saucepan over medium heat, and cook, stirring to dissolve sugar, until cranberries have just softened, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool completely.

  4. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out dough to a 12-inch circle, 1/2 to 1/4 inch thick. Transfer to an 8-by-2-inch springform pan, pressing crust into bottom and up sides. Trim excess flush with rim. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

  5. Preheat oven to 350 F. Prick tart crust all over with a fork. Cut a 12-inch round of parchment and place on top of chilled crust. Fill with pie weights or dried beans. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove weights and parchment and brush crust lightly with egg white. Return to oven, and bake until pale golden, about 25 minutes. Refrigerate remaining egg white. Let crust cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes.

  6. Raise oven temperature to 375 F. Spread jam over bottom of tart crust.

  7. Beat butter and remaining 1/2 c. sugar with a mixer on medium-high speed until pale and fluffl, about 3 minutes. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Reduce speed to medium. Slowly add ground almonds, cinnamon, and salt, and beat until just combined. spread mixture over jam-covered crust.

  8. Bake tart until filling is set and has darkened slightly, 45 to 50 minutes. (If top darkens too quickly, cover loosely with foil.) Remove tart from oven, brush top with egg white, and sprinkle with 1 tbsp. sugar (about.) REturn to oven, and bake for 5 minutes. Remove from pan and top with candied cranberries. Serve warm.
