Ingredients
  • 375g ready-made sweet dessert pastry (or shortcrust pastry)
  • Flour, for rolling out
  • 75g ground almonds
  • 75g caster sugar
  • 200g Asda Good for you Crème Fraîche
  • 3 large free-range eggs
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 5 fresh figs
Method
  • Pre-heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/Gas 6. Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface until it’s the thickness of a pound coin. Use it to line a 20cm flan tin. Prick the base, lay a piece of foil on the pastry and weigh it down with baking beans. Bake for 10 minutes then remove the foil and beans. Reduce the oven to 180C/160 Fan/Gas 4 and cook the pastry for a further 5 minutes.

  • Beat the almonds, sugar, crème fraîche, eggs and vanilla extract until smooth. Pour into the flan case.

  • Trim the figs, cut each one into 4 slices and arrange on top of the filling. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the filling has just set.
