This really is an easy cake. To roast the nuts use a dry frying pan but watch them very carefully as they take no time at all to burn!

If you do not want to make your own pastry you could buy either shortcrust or puff. You do not have to use a pie plate either, you can of course use a pie dish and you do not have to line it with pastry, you can just put a pastry lid on your pie. Pies are all the rage now and I think they are lovely in the Autumn / Winter months.
