For the jam filling:[edit | edit source]
- 2 cups frozen raspberries
- 1 tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 2 tbsp. syrup

- 1 tsp. chia seeds

Preparation[edit | edit source]
For the Shortbread Crust:[edit | edit source]
- Preheat the oven to 180˚C.
- Combine all of the crust ingredients together until everything is evenly mixed. Dough should be crumbly but still form a dough when pressed together.
- Spread the dough onto a greased baking tray(what size?). Press down slightly with a spatula until the layer is evenly spread over the bottom of the tray.
- Prick the crust all over with a fork. Bake for approximately 15 minutes.
- Remove from the oven and set aside.
For the Jam Filling:[edit | edit source]
- Combine the raspberries and syrup in a pot and allow to cook for approximately 5 minutes on a medium heat. Stir often to prevent the jam from burning.
- Add the remaining ingredients and continue to cook until the mixture is a thick consistency.
- Break down any raspberry pieces which may be too big before removing from the heat and allowing to cool down.
Assembly and baking:[edit | edit source]
- Once cooled, spread the jam evenly all over the shortbread base.
- Prepare the quarter-recipe of crust to use as topping.
- Crumble topping and combine with almonds. Sprinkle topping over the jam spread. Place the tray back in the oven to bake for a further 15-20 minutes.
- Once golden brown, remove from the oven and allow to cool.
