Ingredients

Directions

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.

In the bowl of a food processor, combine flour and salt. Cut 11 tablespoons butter, into pieces, and add to bowl. Process until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar and egg yolks. Pulse until the mixture begins to form clumps. Transfer to plastic wrap, and flatten into a disk. Chill until very firm, about 1 hour.

Coarsely grate the pastry into a 12-inch loose-bottomed, fluted tart pan. Using the palm of your hand, gently press the pastry evenly into the pan, making sure to cover the bottom and sides of the tart pan completely. Line the pastry with foil, and fill with pie weights or dried beans. Transfer to oven, and bake 10 minutes. Remove from oven, and carefully remove the foil and weights. Return to oven, and bake until very light brown, about 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Transfer to a wire rack, and let cool. Reduce oven temperature to 300 degrees F.

Place almonds in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse the almonds until fine. Remove from processor, and place in a medium bowl.

Bring remaining cup of butter to room temperature. Place the butter and sugar in the bowl of a food processor. Process until the mixture is light and creamy. Add almonds and eggs, 1 at a time.

Spread mixture into the cooled pastry, and bake until top is golden brown, about 45 to 50 minutes. Remove from oven. Transfer to a wire rack, and let cool.

Place the strawberries standing upright on tart, in a circular pattern. Dust the tart with confectioners' sugar.
