  5. Collect the dough together to form a ball. Turn out onto a clean work surface and gently kneed and shape into an even ball, then roll out and use to line a 20–23cm (8- 9in) loose-based flan tin.

  10. Spread the base of the pastry case with jam
  11. Melt the Kerrymaid Buttery, the 55g of sugar and syrup together in a pan, then add the cornflakes and mix.
