Mix 200g flour, 100g unsalted butter, 60g sugar and the salt in a food processor until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add 1 egg yolk and mix until a dough just comes together. Roll out the dough on a floured surface until it’s 3mm thick.

Step 3 - Line the tin

Line a 23cm loose based tart tin with the dough and leave for 15 minutes.

Step 5 - Make the filling

Beat together the remaining butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in 3 eggs, one at a time, then stir in the remaining flour, almonds and coconut.

Step 6 - Add filling to pastry

Spoon the SEGGIANO Sicilian grapefruit conserve over the cooled pastry base, then top with the almond and coconut filling, spreading evening to the edges.

Step 7 - Bake in the oven
