Should serve 8. Served 3.5. Let’s blame Bert.
75g golden caster sugar
75g soft butter
75g ground almonds
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Frozen puff pastry – 500g pack (there will be some leftover)
Frozen berries – enough to cover the pastry
Beat the sugar and butter together in a food processor (or by hand), then beat in the eggs and stir through the almonds and vanilla.
Line a pie dish with the puff pastry, cover with a layer of fruit and then cover the lot with the frangipane filling. Bake at 190 or in the middle of an Aga roasting oven for 30 minutes.
For dinner tonight Bert ate five new potatoes and three slices of tart. He was quite literally begging us for tart. Then he zoomed off in his tractor with John the bunny riding pillion.
