Raspberry Tart Recipe
2 cups all-purpose flour
5 Tbsps. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
12 Tbsp. unsalted butter, chilled
2 egg yolks
2 Tbsps. ice water

2 cups sugar
1/2 cup cornstartch
1/2 cup raspberry Jell-O (must be Jell-O brand)
1/4 tsp. salt
2 cups water
1 to 2 pints fresh raspberries

Crust is foolproof if made in a food processor, but can also be made by hand. Place flour, sugar and salt in the food processor. Process for about 20 seconds until evenly mixed. Add butter, cut into 12 chunks. Process until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Mix together egg yolks and ice water. Turn processor on and immediately pour egg-water mixture through the feed tube in a steady stream. As soon as dough forms a ball shape, stop processing. If dough does not ball up, add 1/4 tsp. water and re-pulse. Repeat until ball forms.

Roll dough immediately, using a small amount of flour to roll (makes 2 tart crusts 8-9" in diameter). Prick bottom of crusts with a fork in several places. Bake in a preheated 325 degree oven until tarts are light tan to golden. If the base of the tarts puff up, gently press them down as you remove them from the oven.

Mix all glaze ingredients in a 4-5 quart pot, making sure no lumps of cornstarch remain. Heat, stirring frequently. When mixture comes to a rolling boil, stir constantly. When glaze turns from milky to clear, boil hard for 1 minute, then turn heat to low and simmer 3 minutes, stirring frequently.

Let glaze cool to a warm (but not room) temperature. Place berries in a flat pan in one layer and drizzle glaze over. Cover berries with glaze by gently folding them over in the glaze with a rubber scraper. Mound berries in the tart crusts with the scraper or place them by hand for a fancier look. Refrigerate at least two hours before serving. Add whipped cream for a special treat.
