  • 200g plain flour
  • 140g cold butter
  • 25g icing sugar
  • 1 egg
  • The filling:
  • 70g ground almonds
  • 1tbsp plain flour
  • 70g butter
  • 60g caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 4 nectarines
  • 4 apricots


Preheat an oven to 180 degrees Celsius, or equivalent.

Place the flour in a bowl, rub in the butter until it resembles breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar, mix in the egg.

Knead quickly and shape into a disc, cover with cling film and place in the fridge for 10 minutes.

Next, make the filling. Put the almonds and flour into a bowl. Add the butter and sugar, beat together with a wooden spoon. Add the egg and beat till it’s a smooth paste.

On a lightly floured surface roll the pastry to form a 30cm circle. Place onto a large greased baking sheet.

Spread the almond mixture over the pastry. Leave a border around the edges.

De-stone and thickly slice the nectarines and apricots. Layer them in a nice pattern and then fold up the sides of the pastry to keep the almond mix and fruit safely inside.

Bake for 30-35 minutes until golden.
