Strawberry Almond Chocolate Tart

pastry for 9-inch pie
1/4 cup strawberry jam
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels
2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
1/2 teaspoon almond extract or 1 tablespoon amaretto liqueur
2 cups sliced strawberries
3 tablespoons toasted almonds

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place unfolded pastry on ungreased baking sheet. Turn edges under 1/2 inch; flute. Prick pastry with tines of a fork. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely on baking sheet on wire rack. Spread with jam.

Microwave chocolate morsels and sweetened condensed milk, uncovered, in a medium size microwave-safe bowl on high for 1 minute. Stir. The morsels may retain some of their original shape; if necessary, microwave for additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until morsels are melted.

Stir in extract or liqueur. Pour over jam and spread to edges. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until chocolate is set.

Arrange strawberries over chocolate and sprinkle with almonds. Serve immediately.

Makes 8 servings.
