    Shortbread Crust

    150g Scottish Shortbread Biscuits

    50g Scottish Porridge Oats

    40g Flaked Almonds

    75g Melted Scottish Butter

    For Filling

    170g Scottish Raspberries

    250ml Scottish Double Cream

    375g Scottish Fat Free Natural Yogurt

    75g Icing Sugar

    1 Lemon, zested

    23cm Fluted Tart Tin


    Pre-heat the oven to 180°C Fan/Gas Mark 6. Break the shortbread into pieces and place in a food processor with the oats and flaked almonds and blitz until finely ground.

    Stir through the melted butter, then press into the base and sides of the tin.

    Bake for 10 minutes, then leave to cool. Whip the cream and icing sugar to soft peaks, then add the yogurt and mix until combined.

    Force the raspberries through a sieve and discard seeds, then fold the strained raspberries into the whipped cream and yogurt, along with the lemon zest.

    Spoon the filling into the crust then smooth the top. Freeze for at least 3-4 hours – the filling should be firm but not frozen solid. If you freeze the torte fully, leave to defrost for 1 hour in the fridge before serving. When ready to serve, top with fresh raspberries, flaked almonds and a scattering of oats.
