Preparation:

Pastry:

Work the butter with the sugar to form a paste. Add the egg yolks one by one and finally the flour mixed with the baking powder. Grease a 9 inch tart pan with a removable base and sprinkle with flour. Line the base and walls with the pastry.

Filling:

Beat the egg whites with the sugar until stiff. Add the lemon zest and gently fold in the ground almonds. Drain the peaches and slice. Place half the slices on the pastry base and cover with the almond meringue. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees F for half an hour. Remove and arrange the rest of the peach slices on top. Bake for a further half hour. Cover with a sheet of aluminum foil or greased paper to prevent burning.

Serve warm with a little table cream.

"Made this with my friend and it was soooooo delicious!! We used a jar of Dole canned peaches instead but I'd recommend getting two jars of that because we had to cut very thin slices. Goes great with vanilla ice cream and is especially delightful served warm."
