(BPT) - Think your family’s favorite breakfast recipe is a winner? Enter it now in the 47th Pillsbury Bake-Off(R) Contest for the chance to win $1 million and other prizes.

In 2013, Antoinette Leal of Ridgefield, Conn., won third prize at the contest for her Cherry Almond Brunch Tart recipe. Antoinette’s winning recipe paired two popular flavors, almond and cherry, and used Eagle Brand(R) Sweetened(R) Condensed Milk to create an extra creamy texture.

Cherry Almond Brunch Tart

Ingredients:

1 Pillsbury(R) refrigerated pie crust, softened as directed on box

4 cups sliced almonds

1 can (14 oz.) Eagle Brand(R) Sweetened Condensed Milk

6 tablespoons butter, softened

1 teaspoon almond extract

1 jar (12 oz.) Smucker's(R) Orchard's Finest(R) Michigan Red Tart Cherry Preserves

1 container (8 oz.) mascarpone cheese

Step 1: Heat oven to 400 F. Unroll pie crust; place in ungreased 10-inch tart pan with removable bottom. Press crust firmly against bottom and side of pan; trim excess crust. Bake 10 to 15 minutes or until crust is light golden brown.

Step 2: Meanwhile, reserve 1/4 cup of the almonds. Place remaining almonds in food processor. Cover; process until coarsely ground. In large bowl, beat sweetened condensed milk, butter, almond extract and 1/4 teaspoon salt on medium speed until creamy. Stir in ground nuts until well blended.

Step 3: Spread 3/4 cup of the preserves over bottom of partially baked crust. Carefully spread almond mixture over preserves, covering bottom of crust completely.

Step 4: Bake 20 to 30 minutes or until center is set and edges are golden brown. Remove to cooling rack; cool 15 minutes. Remove side of pan; cool 30 minutes.

Step 5: In small bowl, mix mascarpone cheese and remaining 1/4 cup preserves until well blended. Top individual servings of tart with mascarpone mixture and reserved 1/4 cup almonds. Serve warm or cool.
