  • In a food processor, add the almonds and beat them well until powdered. 
  • Add the flour, the icing sugar, the butter -ice-cold- into cubes, salt, and beat until the mixture looks like wet sand. 
  • Add the egg, the almond extract, and beat well. 
  • Butter a 28 cm springform tart pan. Spread the crust over the whole surface of the pan, making sure there is an overhang. Cover with plastic wrap and add pie weights.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes. Remove the pie weights and bake for 20 more minutes. Remove and let it cool.
  • Cut the overhanging dough and set aside. 

For the filling

  • In a mixer’s bowl add the butter, the icing sugar, salt, the almond extract, and beat with the paddle attachment at medium speed, for 2-3 minutes, until the icing sugar is completely dissolved. 
  • Lower the speed and add the melted chocolate very slowly. Increase the speed and beat for 10 seconds at high speed. 
  • Take a pastry bag with a star tip and transfer the mixture. Spread the filling over the whole surface of the tart crust. 
  • Dust with cocoa powder, sprinkle with almond slivers, and serve.
