Using a mini-food processor, chop almonds into a coarse meal. In a large mixing bowl or food processor, combine almonds, butter, flour, 1 tablespoon confectioner’s sugar and almond extract. Blend into a thick pastry and pat into the bottom of a well greased 8×12 baking dish. Mix thoroughly. Pour key lime filling over partially baked crust and return to the oven. Bake 30 minutes or until key lime filling sets. Remove from oven and cool. Sift remaining confectioner’s sugar on the top and cut into squares.
