How to Make Framboises Almond Square with Glossy Meringue
- Preheat the oven at 350 degrees.
Grate the almond paste and add to a medium bowl. Add the butter and sugar and beat until soft. Add the beaten egg and almond extract. Mix in the flour and stir until well blended. In baking pan bake mixture for about 20-25 minutes or until light golden brown. After cooling, evenly spread the raspberries jam on top .
- Make the meringue with an electric mixer by startings to whip the whites with the cream of tartar and little by little add the sugar.
When making a meringue you have to have patience other wise do not dare to make one...It takes time!
Whip the sugar well every time you add it. Add about 3TBS each time. Every time I make a meringue it takes me at least 20 minutes. I love mine real glossy and of course with all the sugar well incorporated and dissolved. That is the key of a successful meringue.
- Now it is the time to frost your cake with the white fluffy "successful" meringue.
Let me know if it is a success!!
