    Bake at 425°F. for 10 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350°F. Sprinkle almonds over filling. Bake at 350°F. for an additional 20 to 30 minutes or until edges are deep golden brown and fruit is tender.

    Immediately loosen tart by running pancake turner under crust; place on wire rack. Cool 30 minutes. Serve warm or cool.
