Step 1
Preheat oven to 350° F.

Combine almonds, cinnamon and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, 2/3 cup sifted powdered sugar and egg yolk in medium mixer bowl. Gradually add flour alternating with almond mixture. Form one third of dough into a ball. Press ball of dough between sheets of wax paper on metal baking sheet to 9-inch circle. Place in freezer. Press remaining dough on bottom and up sides of ungreased 9-inch tart pan with removable bottom. Refrigerate approximately 30 minutes.
Step 3
Stir jam and lemon juice together in small bowl. Melt morsels in uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) power for 1 minute; STIR. Morsels may retain some of their shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals stirring just until morsels are melted. Swirl chocolate into jam mixture. Spread over dough.

Remove dough circle from freezer. Cut into ten 3/4-inch wide strips. Use a knife to carefully place every other strip on top of raspberry mixture.
