Ingredients
1.333 cups
1 cup
½ cup
1
Vanilla pod (halved lengthways, seeds scraped out)
1
2 teaspoons
cup
cold butter
All purpose flour (for the work surface)
3 tablespoons
1 teaspoon
½ cup
Red currant juice (or grape juice)
1 teaspoon
1 tablespoon
2 ⅔ cups
Red currant (some set aside on stems to garnish)

Preparation steps

1.
Mix together the flour, almonds, sugar, vanilla seeds and a pinch of salt. Pile on to a work surface and make a well in the middle. Crack the egg into the well and add the almond liqueur. Place the butter around the well and quickly knead into a smooth pastry. Shape into a ball, wrap in cling film and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
2.
Heat the oven to 200°C (180°C in a fan oven), 400°F, gas 6 and line two baking trays with greaseproof paper.
3.
Roll out the pastry on a floured work surface approx. 0.4 cm thick and cut out round biscuits approx. 7 cm diameter. Place on the prepared baking trays and bake for around 10 minutes until golden. Remove from the oven and leave to cool on a wire rack.
4.
Place the sugar, lemon juice and redcurrant juice in a pot and bring to the boil. Mix together the cornflour and the cassis liqueur and stir into the fruit sauce. Simmer for a few minutes to thicken, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat and fold in the redcurrants. Leave to cool completely.
5.
Place a tbsp of the redcurrant mixture on the top of each biscuit. Garnish with the remaining redcurrants and dust with icing sugar. Serve with goat's milk yogurt.
