Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Unroll the pastry on a lightly floured surface and cut in half horizontally. Slice each half into 3.

  • STEP 2

    Lay the pastry sheets on a baking sheet. Use a knife to mark a 1cm border on each – be careful not to go all the way through. Prick inside the border with a fork, then brush all over with beaten egg.

  • STEP 3

    Bake for 10 mins until golden and slightly risen. Divide the marzipan equally between the pastry squares and fan out the peach slices on top, followed by a sprinkling of almonds.

  • STEP 4

    Put the slices back into the oven for 10 mins until they have puffed up and are golden. Serve with a dollop of crème fraîche.

RECIPE TIPS
USE UP LEFTOVER MARZIPAN

Almond ice cream sundaes for 6. Crumble 250g marzipan into 1 litre good-quality softened vanilla ice cream. Return to the tub, then freeze for at least 1 hr. Fill the bottom of 6 sundae dishes with your favourite fruit, top with a scoop of ice cream, some whipped cream and 1 tbsp flaked almonds.
