1/4 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons chilled unsalted butter
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract

1/2 cup plus additional 2 tbs slivered almonds, toasted
2/3 cup plus additional 2 tbls seedless raspberry jam
2 and 1/2-pint baskets raspberries

Preheat oven to 375.

Combine flour, sugar and salt in processor; blend 10 seconds. Add butter. Using on/off turns, blend until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add egg and vanilla and almond extracts.
Using on/off turns, process until moist clumps form. Gather dough into ball.

Using floured fingertips, press dough onto bottom and up sides of 9-inch-tart pan with removable bottom.

Press 1/2 cup almonds over bottom of crust; spread with 2/3 cup jam.

Toss raspberries with remaining 2 tablespoons jam to coat. Top jam layer with coated berries.
Sprinkle 2 tablespoons almonds around edge of tart
