DIRECTIONS

  • Line 8" flan tin with shortcrust pastry crust (or use a frozen pie crust and I suggest baking it for 8 minutes prior to filling).
  • Cream together sugar and butter until smooth. Add flour, ground almonds, almond essence, and eggs (beaten). Mix well.
  • Spread your favorite jam evenly over the pastry with the back of a spoon.
  • Pour butter mixture into pastry crust, and sprinkle top with flaked almonds.
  • Bake in pre-heated 350 degree F oven for 30-40 minutes. Leave in until middle has set.
