Easy Marmalade Pie

2 oz unsalted butter
1 oz caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
4.5 oz flaked almonds
2 tbs milk
1 cup good-quality marmalade

Pastry base
5 oz unsalted butter
8 oz plain flour
4 tbs cornflour
1/2 tsp baking powder
4 oz caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract

To make the pastry base, place the butter, flour, cornflour, baking powder, sugar, vanilla and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a food processor and process to combine until the mixture is crumbly. Press the dough into a 10 inch greased and lined tart pan with a removable base. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to chill.
Preheat the oven to 350 F.
Meanwhile, place the butter, sugar, vanilla, almonds and milk in a saucepan over low heat, stirring, until butter has melted. Set aside to cool slightly.
Spread the marmalade over the pastry base, pour over the topping and bake for 25-30 minutes until golden and cooked through. Serve warm.
