Ingredients:

  • 1 cup ground almonds
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • 10 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
  • 2/3 cup sifted powdered sugar
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup seedless raspberry jam
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 cup (6 oz.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
  • Powdered sugar

Directions:

PREHEAT oven to 350° F.

COMBINE almonds, cinnamon and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, sugar and egg yolk in medium mixer bowl. Gradually add flour alternating with almond mixture. Form one third of dough into a ball. Press ball of dough between sheets of wax paper on metal baking sheet to 9-inch circle. Place in freezer. Press remaining dough on bottom and up sides of ungreased 9-inch tart pan with removable bottom. Refrigerate approximately 30 minutes.

STIR jam and lemon juice together in small bowl. Melt morsels in uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) power for 1 minute; STIR. Morsels may retain some of their shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals stirring just until morsels are melted. Swirl chocolate into jam mixture. Spread over dough.

REMOVE dough circle from freezer. Cut into ten 3/4-inch wide strips. Use a knife to carefully place every other strip on top of raspberry mixture. Repeat with remaining dough strips, placing them crosswise to form a lattice appearance on top. Use a fork to press the ends of the strips into edge of crust.

BAKE for 45 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Refrigerate for at least 3 1/2 hours or until well chilled. Remove side of tart pan and place on serving platter before serving.

    Lucille Kingsbury from SPARTA, MI

    A keeper! Prepared twice over Christmas holiday.Everyone said its the best in flavor/taste/appearance. The second try I used raspberry pie filling versus the jam and then made lemon curd for the second layer with whipped topping flavored with raspberry extract and final fresh raspberries-no top crust. Baked it after the raspberry & chocolate layer enough to brown the crust. Try it you will like it! Both recipes super!

    Easier than I imagined and much better than it looks which is hard to believe! I have always told others I am not a cook or much of a baker but after making this, no one will ever believe me again! Incredible results! Easily impresses everyone! Thank you Nestle!

    Didn't think I could do it!

    Pat Pruitt from SPRINGDALE, AR

    When I read this recipe It sounded heavenly but very hard. I thought, what the heck, I've made big messes before and if that is how this one turns out, so be it. I have learned to follow receipes by going from one sentence to the next and thank goodness it worked. My family was astounded that even they know I'm a pretty good cook, some things are just above my means. They were so happy for me that it looked so perfect. When they tasted it, it was great! The looks on their faces were amazing. Once again Mom had suceeded. I am really glad that I did it and will do it again. Don't let the ones that look too hard get you down as I almost did. If it turns out to be a mess, throw it out and try again. I have decided that I am as smart as any receipe and will not hesitate to let the hard ones stop me from trying. Thank you for writing them so we can follow them word by word. Sooner or later you will build up your self esteen and know that you can do it. It was hard but well worth it.

    Elegant and Easy

    Debra Sackett from WARREN, IN

    I was looking for a unique birthday treat for myself and picked this one. It was quite easy to make. I did not take the time to refrigerate like in the recipe. I think the torte itself went into the freezer for ten minutes and the rolled out top a little longer. The combination of the chocolate and raspberries reminded me of a favorite candy I have loved since I was a child. Even my pickiest of eaters enjoyed it at my house. Most assuredly a keeper.

    Fruit and Chocolate Pair Well!

    ALI MALLARE from Leawood, KS

    My family loves the combination of fruity flavors with chocolate. The first time I tried any type of fruit and chocolate combination was when I tried a chocolate orange. I like raspberry flavors even more than organe, so I decided to try this recipe, and it was a HUGE hit! My entire family, as well as my extended family, loved it, even my younger cousins, who are usually picky eaters. I will certainly be making this recipe again in the near future! :) Thanks for a great recipe!

    A delicious combination of chocolate and rasberry sets this torte off from the start. Found it easy to grind almonds in my food processor for the torte. A fluted pastry cutter is useful for cutting the lattice strips for the top. Give this recipie a try you are sure to enjoy it.

    Reminds me of Grandma's Recipe

    CATHY ROSPOTYNSKI from CLEVELAND, OH

    This Chocolate Raspberry Linzer Torte was a little complicated but it was worth the effort. All of my family said they reminded them of the raspberry squares that my grandmother made. This was definitely a little bit richer. Raspberry and chocolate is always a good combination and I would definitely make this again for a special occasion.
