|'Under the Walnut Tree'|
by mother and daughter, Anna and Fanny Bergenstrom
Thwarted by my lack of ingredients and the heavy rain showers that Emma so rightly predicted, running to the shop was not an option, 'A cake from Tuscany" was flipped over in favour of an improvised version of "Festive almond slices.' With more than a partial passion for a Bakewell Tart, I swapped the apricot jam for raspberry, spreading a good thick layer over the puff pastry, and topping it all with an almond paste, cream cheese and icing sugar mix. A few flaked almonds and perhaps a wee bit too much icing sugar were sprinkled on top.
Technically, not a cake but these were delicious!
