Instructions
  1. Bake these pastry cases and serve filled with lemon butter or your favourite jam as an afternoon tea treat.
  2. Ingredients: 250g flour, sifted 3 tablespoons caster sugar 185g butter, chilled and cut into small cubes 1 egg yolk, lightly beaten with a few drops vanilla essence 3-4 tablespoons chilled water 3 tablespoons ground almonds
  3. Directions: 1. Place flour and sugar in a bowl and mix to combine. Add butter and rub in using your fingertips until mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. 2. Mix in egg yolk mixture and enough water to form a soft dough with a metal spatula or round-ended knife. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently until smooth. Wrap in plastic food wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes. 3. On a lightly floured surface roll pastry out to 3 mm in thick, sprinkle with almonds and cut out rounds, using a 5 cm in pastry cutter. 4. Place rounds in lightly greased patty tins, prick bases with a fork and bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden. Remove cases from tins and cool on a wire rack.
