 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    4       oz           Self-raising flour
    1       t            Powdered cinnamon
    4       oz           Ground almonds
    4       oz           Caster sugar
    4       oz           Butter or margarine
    1                    Lemon -- (grated rind only)
    8       oz           Raspberry jam
                         Icing sugar
   Sift the flour and cinnamon into a bowl or food
   processor, then put in the ground almonds, sugar,
   butter or margarine and grated lemon rind. Process,
   without the plunger (to let in more air and make the
   mixture light), or rub the fat into the other
   ingredients with your fingers. Either way, the result
   will be a soft dough.  You can roll this out straight
   away, but it’s easier to handle if you wrap it in
   polythene and chill it for 30 minutes.
   Set the oven to 180 C/350 F/Gas Mark 4.  On a lightly
   floured board, roll out two-thirds of the almond
   mixture, to fit a 20 cm/8 inch flan tin. Put the
   pastry into the tin and trim the edges.  Spread the
   jam over the pastry, then roll out the remaining
   pastry, including the trimmings, and cut long strips
   to make a lattice across the top of the jam. Bake the
   torte for 30 minutes, or until the pastry is set and
   lightly browned. Serve hot or cold, with a snowy
   topping of sifted icing sugar.
