some fruits all ripen at the same time

to use them up

this recipe is adapted from a pear tart

4 peaches or fruits of your choice
85g softened butter
85g caster sugar
85g ground almonds
2 tablespoons plain flour
2 eggs

preheat the oven to 200c/gas 6
the line a 20cm tart tin with the pastry
cover with greaseproof and baking beans
blind bake for 15mins, remove the paper and beans
prick the base with a fork, reduce oven to 180c/gas 4
and bake for a further five minutes
to make the almond mixture ~ 
 cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy
gradually add the eggs
tip in the almonds and flour and mix carefully
