1 teaspoon baking powder
13 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 egg
2 cups grated almonds
2 cups sugar

To prepare short paste, sift flour and baking powder into bowl and work in remaining 3 ingredients in order given until you have smooth paste. Set aside. To prepare filling, work first 3 ingredients together by hand, then beat in eggs with wooden spoon. Beat in almond extract. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Divide short paste in two and, using fingers, press it into 2 9-inch tart pans, lining them completely.
