1/4 cup SMUCKER'S® Apricot Preserves

1/4 cup Fisher® Chef's Naturals® Sliced Almonds

5. Place pan on cookie sheet. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until edge is golden brown and filling is set. Cool in pan 15 minutes. Remove side of pan; place tart on serving plate.* Refrigerate uncovered 1 hour 30 minutes or until chilled.
