  1. For the crust: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease the bottom and sides of a 9-inch springform pan with 1 tablespoon butter.
  2. Combine the flour and salt in a large bowl. Using your fingers, work the remaining 8 tablespoons butter into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Gently pat the crust into the bottom of the pan and about 1 1/2 inches up the sides. Brush the egg yolk over the crust to form a protective coating. Line the crust with a piece of foil or parchment paper and fill with raw rice or pie weights. Bake until the crust is golden brown, 15 to 18 minutes. Remove weights. Let cool 5 minutes.
  3. For the filling: Beat the cream cheese in an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment on medium speed until smooth, 3 to 5 minutes. Turn the mixer to low speed and slowly pour the orange juice into the cream cheese followed by the condensed milk. Spoon the filling over the crust, tapping the sides of the pan even out the distribution. Sprinkle the almonds over the top of the filling.
  4. Refrigerate until firm, 2 to 3 hours or preferably overnight.
