Peanut Slices

Peanut Slices

6 ounces (about 180 gm) biscuit pastry
2 eggs (separated)
1 ounce (about 30 gm) melted butter or substitute
3/4 cup of sugar
1 tablespoon of plum or a berry jam
1 cup coconut
1/2 pound (about 225 gm) raw peanuts
1 cup corn cereal flakes

Roll or press the biscuit pastry out thinly to cover the base of a lightly greased lamington tin (about 7″ x 11″, or 18 cm x 28 cm), and put this in the refrigerator to chill while you prepare the filling
Beat the egg yolks well, then add the sugar, melted butter and jam
Beat a few minutes more, then mix in the coconut and peanuts
Beat the egg whites until stiff and fold them into the mixture with the corn cereal flakes
Spread this mixture over the top of the pastry and bake in a moderate oven (350F or 180C) for about 40 to 45 minutes
Allow to cool slightly, then cut into slices
