1/3 c Butter

DOUGH: Beat the 1/2 cup of butter and the cream cheese with an electric mixer for 30 seconds. Stir in the flour. Cover and chill for 1 hour or until the dough is easy to handle. FILLING: Beatr the 1/3 cup of butter with an electric mixer for 30 seconds. Beat in the sugar, then the egg and vanilla. Stir in the ground almonds. Press 1 tablespoon of the dough (a ball about 1 1/4 inches in diameter) evenly into the bottom and up the sides of each of eighteen 2- to 2 1/2-inch tart pans (the tiny tart pans are sometimes called sandbakkesler molds). Spoon 1 teaspoon of the almond filling onto each tart. Bake on a baking sheet for 20 to 25 minutes in a 350F oven. Cool the tarts in the pans for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, heat and stir the apricot preserves over low heat until melted. Remove the tarts from the pans and place on wire racks. While the tarts are still warm, brush the filling with the melted preserves. Garnish with sliced almonds, if desired. Cool. Makes 18 tarts.
