For the pastry you can use shop brought shortcrust pastry to save time, but have a go at making your own.
These cakes are lovely served with custard as a pudding or ice cream or just cream.
Never before have I had a tape measure when making pastry, but it worked!!!! I didn’t realise just how thin 2mm was. I made double quantity and used the only home-made jam I had, plum. They are delicious. Thank you Julie. My next batch will be made with ground almonds, thanks Eddie. I will review the almond ones later. - 09 Jun 2014
