PersonalPoints 9
Prep 15 mins
Cook 45 mins
Serves 8

1 tablespoon plain flour plus extra for dusting
500g block shortcrust pastry
40g flaked almonds
40g caster sugar
4 small plums, destoned and sliced
1⁄4 teaspoon almond extract
1⁄2 teaspoon icing sugar

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Line a baking tray with baking paper and dust your work surface with plain flour. Shape half of the block of shortcrust pastry into a disc, then roll out into a rough circle to the thickness of a £1 coin.
  2. Use a 25cm plate as a guide to cut out a round of pastry, then put it on the baking tray. Chop half of the almonds then put in a medium bowl. Add the plain flour and 30g of the caster sugar, then toss to combine.
  3. Scatter the mixture over the centre of the pastry, leaving a 4cm border. In a small bowl, toss the sliced plums with the almond extract. Arrange the plums on top of the almond mixture on the pastry.
  4. Fold the border of the pastry over the plums, brush with a little water then scatter over the remaining sugar and flaked almonds. Bake for 40-45 minutes until the filling is bubbling and the pastry is golden.
  5. Cool on the tray for 10 minutes, then serve warm or put on a wire rack to cool completely. Dust with the icing sugar before serving.
