Going through the cupboards after our holiday I noticed we had bags of figs and apricots heading towards their best before date. So this weekend is all about using them up. I decided to do my fig rolls again (and not mess up the oven temperature this time!).
But that still left lots of figs, plus apricots. Oh… and the recipe makes too much marzipan… so that now needed using up! So I decided to make my old school’s shortcake, but with a marzipan layer and apricot/fig filling. Of plus using up some mixed nuts… and some flaked almonds.
So I start with my school’s shortcake recipe.
I added a handful of porridge oats to the remaining shortcake mix and added that. Then sprinkled brown sugar and flaked almonds on top, and pressed it all down. Then it’s into the oven at 160c fan…
