Bakewell Flapjacks

This was another new recipe for me - a flapjack combined with a Bakewell tart.  I found lots of different variations on line so picked bits from recipes that I liked the look of.  I like flapjacks to be chewy so I cooked them on a fairly low heat.  They were a success - sweet and soft with a good almond flavour - a recipe to make again.
