  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C/375°F/gas 5. Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface and use to line a 23cm fluted flan tin or a 33 x 11cm fluted tranche tin. Chill for 30 minutes then bake blind for 15 minutes, or until barely coloured.
  2. Place the ground almonds, icing sugar, eggs, almond essence and cream in the Kenwood Bowl. Using the K Beater at minimum speed, mix together until smooth. Pour into the pastry case and bake for 15-20 minutes or until set.
