  • Puff pastry, using 4 oz. flour, etc.
  • 4 oz. ground almonds


Roll out the pastry thinly and line 12 patty tins. Mix the ground almonds and sugar together, add the beaten egg and mix in the flour, cream and orange-flower water. Put a little mixture in each patty tin and bake in a fairly hot oven (400° F., Gas 6) till set and golden brown.
