Ingredients

  • 375g sheet ready-rolled puff pastry
  • 190g ready-made marzipan
  • 2 tbsp apricot compote, plus extra
  • 150g finely chopped soft dried apricots
  • Handful toasted flaked almonds

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C/fan200°C/gas 7. Unroll a 375g sheet ready-rolled puff pastry onto a lightly floured work surface. Coarsely grate 190g ready-made marzipan. Sprinkle evenly over half the pastry, then fold over the other half of pastry to cover the marzipan.
  2. Roll out the pastry until it’s the same size it was originally (about 23cm x 25cm). Mix 2 tbsp apricot compote with 150g finely chopped soft dried apricots and spread evenly over the pastry. Taking a long edge, roll up the pastry into a tight roll. Using a sharp knife, slice the rolled pastry into 18 rounds, about 1.5cm thick.
  3. Chill on a lined baking sheet for 10 minutes, then bake for 15 minutes until puffed and golden. While still warm, glaze with a little more of the apricot compote and scatter with toasted flaked almonds. Serve immediately.
