    Roll pastry between two sheets of baking paper until 3mm (1/8in) thick. Using a plate or cake pan, cut out a 25cm (10in) round from pastry; discard offcuts. Sprinkle almond meal over pastry round, then evenly spread with frangipane, leaving a 3cm (1in) border. Toss berries in cornflour to coat, shaking off excess, then scatter over frangipane. Fold pastry border up and over filling.
