  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Roll out the pastry on a floured surface until big enough to line a 23cm tart tin with an overhang. Line the tin with pastry, gently folding overhanging pastry down the outside of the tin, then prick all over with a fork. Line with greaseproof paper; sit a 20cm sandwich tin on top (it should fit snugly). Fill with baking beans, then blind-bake for 20-25 mins until the sides are set. Remove the beans, tin and paper and cook for 10 -15 mins more until golden, risen and crisp. Cool a little, then trim the overhang and press down any risen bits.
  2. Lower oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Beat together the filling ingredients, spoon into the tin and top with the peaches. Scatter with 1 tbsp caster sugar and extra flaked almonds, then bake for 40 mins until puffed up and golden, with a slight wobble in the centre. Cool to room temperature and serve with crème fraîche.

Absolutely loved this (until i realised it was 21 ww points per serving!!). Easy to make, friends were very impressed. It was all gone very quickly. The filling tastes like a really nice almond croissant filling. Yum! Also substituted tinned peaches and they were fine.

Nice flavour but a bit of a gloopy filling. I tried cooking it for longer but ut never really 'set'.
