Almond Cherry Slice Recipe

Approx. ½ lb sweet pastry to line a swiss roll tin (I use a  smaller tin to give a thicker slice)
Spread with jam (Optional.  I use any red jam – it makes it more moist)
6 oz ground almonds
2-3 oz flaked almonds
3 large eggs
9 oz castor sugar
4-6 oz glazed cherries

Whip the eggs and sugar
Lightly fold in the ground almonds and spread over the pastry base (over jam if have used)
Scatter cherries cut in half and then scatter the flaked almonds on top
Bake at 350F/180C for 30-40 minutes.  Cut into fingers when cold.
