125 gram butter
3 eggs
150 gram sugar
100 gram plain flour
50 gram almond meal
1 heaped teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt

Beat butter and sugar
add one egg at a time
Fold through, flour, almond meal, baking powder, salt. Sifted.

You can spread pastry into a lined ring tin or in a lined slice or lamington tin.
Put half pitted plums on top, (half soaked o/night apricots, sliced pears or whatever).
Press into pastry.

160 degree oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown on top and pastry is cooked.
Cool and sprinkle icing sugar on top. For pears, I use cinnamon and castor sugar (mixed).

If you double or triple the recipe and use a large lined baking tray you can cut lots of squares out of it.

If you prefer apricots, you need to prepare them the day before.
