RICHMOND MAIDS of HONOUR

8 ozs puffy pastry
apricot jam
8 ozs cottage cheese, sieved
1 large egg
1 extra egg yolk
1 1/2 ozs castor sugar
grated rind of 1 lemon
1 rounded Tbs currants
1 oz ground almonds
icing sugar

Preheat oven to 400 F.

Start by rolling the pastry to 1/8 inch thick, using a 3 1/4 inch
fluted cutter cut out little circles and place them in patty tins.

Combine the cheese, castor sugar, lemon rind, ground almonds and
currants in a bowl, then beat the egg and yolk together and add
this as well. Mix, very thoroughly, with a fork until everything
is evenly blended.

Spoon the merest trace of jam into the base of each pastry case,
and fill each one about 2/3 full with cheese mixture. Bake the in
the centre of the oven for about 25 - 30 minutes, by which time
the mixture will have puffed right up and turned a lovely golden
brown.

Take them out of the oven and transfer them onto a wire rack to
cool. Don't worry as you see the centres starting to sink because
that is correct and normal. When cold, dust with a little icing
sugar.
