Ingredients
 

  • 8 oz flour
  • 2 1/2 oz ground almonds
  • 7 oz butter cut into small knobs,
  • plus extra for greasing
  • 5 1/2 oz unrefined light brown sugar
  • 2 - 3 egg yolks

for the filling:

  • 7 oz redcurrant jelly
  • 2 lb strawberries

Instructions

  • Mix together the flour and ground almonds. Rub the butter into the flour with your fingertips until it resembles breadcrumbs. (Remember: cool kitchen and cool fingers, if you can.) Mix in the sugar. Then add the egg yolks and mix them in using a round-ended knife in a cutting motion until the ingredients come together into a pastry ball.
  • Put the pastry ball on to a cool, floured work surface and lightly knead with the palm of your hand for a minute, to ensure a smooth pastry. Wrap and place in the fridge to rest for 40 minutes.
  • Lightly butter a 25cm push-up-bottom flan tin. Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface, then line the tin. Place in the fridge to chill again for 20 minutes.
  • Heat the oven to 180°C/gas 4.
  • Line the pastry case with baking parchment and baking beans and bake for 20 minutes. Then remove the lining paper and beans, reduce the heat to 150°C/gas 2, and bake for a further 25 minutes until the pastry is golden and set. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
  • Gently heat the redcurrant jelly in a small saucepan over a low heat until thin and smooth. Allow the jelly to cool a little.
  • Carefully release the cooled pastry case and transfer it to a large flat plate. Do take care, as this pastry is fragile.
  • Cut any large strawberries into smaller pieces, then pile the fruit into the case. Spoon the redcurrant jelly over the strawberries to give an even coating, leave to set for 1 hour, then serve.
