Pastry: Combine flour and butter in a blender or food processor; mix until dough has a sandy consistency. Add the almond meal, powdered sugar, egg yolk, cold water and salt.

Form dough into a ball; place in a greased bowl and cover. Refrigerate for up to two hours or overnight. Preheat oven to 350-degrees F. Sprinkle flat work surface with flour; spread the dough and prick with a fork. Place dough in greased tart molds, forming to fit. Cut off pastry overhand. Bake for fifteen to twenty minutes; set aside to cool.

Frosting: In a bowl, combine the powdered sugar, food coloring and water. Stir until mixture becomes thick and fluffy. Spread frosting on top of chocolate in tart molds. Allow to harden at room temperature for about one hour before serving.


Suggestion: Garnish with chocolate pieces if desired.
