150g Whitworths Honey Apricots

Roll out pastry to 5mm thickness. Cut into 8 rectangles approximately 12cm x 7cm.
Roll out marzipan to 3mm thickness. Cut into 8 rectangles approximately 10cm x 5cm.
Brush the pastry with a little beaten egg, then place each marzipan rectangle onto each pastry rectangle.
Top each with 2 Whitworth’s apricots and sprinkle on the flaked almonds.
Place the completed pastries onto a large, lightly greased baking tray approximately 1cm apart and bake in the centre of the oven for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.

Whitworths Cinnamon Apple Sprinkles and omit the almonds.
