  • Pastry
    1kg Self Raising Flour
    300g margarine
    4 eggs
    vanilla essence
    Lemon zest
    200g sugar
    (I have used this pastry for lemon merangues, apple pies, mince pies and even biscuits)

    For filling
    500g ground almonds
    400g sugar
    2 egg whites
    almond essence
    Lemon zest and juice

    Mix flour and margarine until it resembles bread crumbs
    Add sugar and lemon zest
    Add eggs and vanilla essence
    Mix until you have a firm mixture
    Add a little milk if necessary
    leave for about 1/2 hour
    You can prepare pastry a day before and leave in the fridge

    For filling mix almonds and sugar
    Mix egg whites until fluffy and fold into the almond mixture
    Add almond essence and if necessary some water so that the mixture is a little soft
