This is a recipe from my sister Amber, she made it for us about a year ago at my parents house, it was tastetastic. Here’s the recipe:
200g Plain flour
115g Cold unsalted butter, diced
25g Caster sugar
1 Egg yolk
Pinch of salt
150g Soft butter
150g Caster sugar
4 medium eggs
150g Ground almonds
40g Plain Flour
Half a jar of best homemade jam (I used raspberry)
Handful of flaked almonds
Put flour and salt into bowl and rub in butter with fingertips (I suggest using a boyfriend for this). Stir in sugar. Mix in egg yolk and bring dough together with a palette knife. Chill in fridge for 30mins.
Preheat oven to 160ºC.
Roll out pastry and line a 25-28cm flan tin. line the pastry with baking parchment and fill with baking beans. Bake blind for 15mins, remove paper and beans and bake for another 15mins. Remove from oven and turn up to 180ºC
In a mixing bowl beat together butter and caster sugar until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in the eggs. Mix together ground almonds and flour and fold into mixture.
Spread the jam over the pastry case then add the almond mix, spread out to fill case. Scatter flaked almonds on top and bake for 40mins until golden brown.
