  1. In a small pan, combine almonds, butter, cream, sugar and syrup. Bring to a slow boil and let the sugar completely dissolve. Keep the heat on medium-low and stir occasionally to make sure that it does not burn. Take off the heat once the sauce has thickened a bit.

  2. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C (375 degrees F).

  3. Grease an 8-inch pan and arrange the pie/tart dough on it.  

  4. Pour the almond paste on top of the pie/tart dough and place in the oven for around 20 minutes or until the paste and the dough has browned a bit.

  5. Take out of the oven and spread the glazed almonds on top of the tart. Put back in the oven and cook for 15-20 minutes or until the top turns golden.

  6. Set aside to cool. Serve.
