  3. Put the flour, ground almonds and salt into a mixing bowl and stir to combine.
  4. Chop the butter into cubes and add them to the bowl.
  5. Using a fork or pastry blender, work the butter cubes and flour together until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  6. Break the egg into a small bowl, add the lemon juice and beat together.
  7. Tip the egg into the mixing bowl and stir to bring together a soft dough.
  8. Gather everything together pressing it into a ball of dough with your hands.

  10. Flatten the dough with the palm of your hand and leave for 5 minutes.
  11. Roll out the pastry into a circle 5cm/2” larger than your dish and, using the parchment paper for support, transfer the pastry to the prepared tart dish and gently press it into place. OR simply press the pastry into the baking dish using your fingers.

Took a risk as no reviews- so glad I tried this recipe. I had some coconut flour to use up, and I wasn’t disappointed. The pastry was fairly easy to make, and came out crispy round the edges and just cooked on the bottom of a frangipani tart. It beats ready made pastry for price, and convenience, and the coconut texture was not too noticeable if you’re not a fan of coconut flour. Thanks.
