  • Skin the peaches, halve and remove the stones. Mix together the almonds, yogurt, orange rind and almond essence. Spoon into the hollows of each peach half an place, cut-side down, on the pastry rounds.
  • Roll out the remaining pastry thinly and cut into thin strips. Arrange the strips over the peaches to form a lattice, brushing with milk to secure firmly. Trim the ends. Chill for 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 200oC/400oF/Gas 6. Brush with milk and bake fro 15-18 minutes, until golden brown.
