  1. Dough - Beat together 1/4 cup shortening and granulated sugar in a bowl until creamy.
    Add one egg and beat until smooth. Stir in flour and baking powder and mix well.

  2. Marzipan Filling - Beat together 1/4 cup shortening and brown sugar in a bowl until creamy.
    Add marzipan paste and vanilla and mix until smooth. Beat in 2 eggs and blend well.

  3. Spray 9-inch cake pan with anti-stick coating ("Pam"). Firmly press dough evenly into bottom of pan and up sides about 1/2 inch.

  4. Spread 1/4 cup raspberry jam over dough. Pour marzipan filling on top of the jam.

  6. Slice strawberries. If you don't plan to eat torte soon, retard browning by soaking sliced strawberries in bowl of water containing 1 T. lemon juice or 1 crushed vitamin C pill.
