  1. Step 1

    To make almond pastry, place butter, flour, almond meal and icing sugar in a food processor. Pulse until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add the egg yolk and water. Process until dough comes together. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and shape into a disc.
  2. Step 2

    Roll out pastry between 2 pieces of baking paper to a 3mm-thick disc. Line a 24cm (base measurement) fluted tart tin with removable base with the pastry, trimming excess. Place in fridge for 30 mins to chill.
  3. Step 3

    Preheat oven to 200°C. Line the pastry case with baking paper and fill with pastry weights or rice. Place on a baking tray and bake for 10 mins. Remove the paper and weights or rice. Bake for a further 5 mins or until pastry is light golden. Cool slightly.
  4. Step 4

    Reduce oven to 160°C. Whisk the eggs, cream, juice, caster sugar and vanilla in a large jug. Pour into pastry case. Bake for 50 mins or until the filling is just set. Cool.
  5. Step 5

    Decorate tart with orange slices, mint and raspberries. Dust with icing sugar.
