  2. Remove partially baked crust from oven. Lightly brush crust with egg white; sprinkle with ground almonds. Return to oven; bake 5 to 10 minutes longer or until golden brown. Cool while making filling.

I had to make it twice to get it just right, but I thought it was absolutely delicious as did the guests for whom I made it. Of course, choose a HIGH QUALITY rasberry jam---don't cheap out because it makes a difference. I also used 1/2 cup of the jam instead of 1/4 and I mixed the chocolate mixture in a double boiler (it makes all the difference in the world) and whisked it for about five minutes before pouring in the tart pan to make sure the eggs yolks are cooked thouroughly. Hope this helps!

I love the almonds baked into this crust! I'm going to use them on more of the pre-baked pie crusts I make this year.
