This famous pastry from the Loire in France, which resembles the galette des rois, is traditionally made for Epiphany to mark the Three Kings’ visit to the baby Jesus. Debbie Major shares her foolproof recipe with us for a classic almond pithivier.
And for a savoury version, try Debbie’s potato, leek and stilton pithivier.
- 38.4g (16.9g saturated)

Seal the edges of the pastry carefully to stop the filling leaking out during baking.
The cooled pithivier will keep for 2-3 days, covered in the fridge. Warm gently in a low oven to serve.
