Ingredients
  1. ½ cup plus 2 tablespoons
  2. sifted cake flour
  3. 1 cup finely ground toasted almonds
  4. 1½ cups superfine sugar
  5. ½ teaspoon salt
  6. 6 large egg whites, lightly beaten
  7. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  8. ⅔ cup brown butter*, melted
  9. 1 recipe Raspberry Puree (recipe follows)
  10. Garnish: confectioners’ sugar
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. Spray 24 assorted (2- or 3-inch) tartlet pans with baking spray. Place on a rimmed baking sheet. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine flour, almonds, sugar, and salt, whisking well. Add egg whites, vanilla, and butter, whisking well.
  4. Divide mixture among prepared pans. Bake for 6 minutes. Remove from oven. Drop approximately ½ teaspoon puree into center of each tartlet. Pull a toothpick through the center of each drop to create a heart.
  5. Bake until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from oven. Cool for 10 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
  6. Carefully remove cakes from pans. Sift confectioners’ sugar over cakes. Use a slightly moistened finger to dissolve sugar over raspberry hearts.
Notes
  1. *To make brown butter, in a small saucepan, melt ⅔ cup butter over medium heat. Continue to cook until butter begins to brown and has a nutty aroma, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from heat, and strain, discarding solids. Let sit at room temperature until set, approximately 1 hour.
