Galette des rois, a puff pastry pie filled with jam and frangipane, is a delicious French cake for Epiphany. Using ready-made pastry makes it easy to impress with this traditional dessert.
Preheat the oven to 200°C/390°F/Gas Mark 6.
Unroll the pastry. Use a plate as a guide to cut two circles of pastry – not too big. I used a side plate.
Cream the butter and sugar together, add the almonds, one egg and almond extract. Mix to a smooth paste.
Lay out one of your pastry circles on a sheet of greaseproof paper on a baking sheet. Spread the jam in a circle in the centre. Allow enough space around the edge to seal on the top layer.
