Give your afternoon tea a new twist with this tasty new scone filling idea. Inspired by the flavours of Bakewell tart, it combines chunky cherry jam with a sweet almond cream and almond flakes for extra crunch.

- Slice the scones in half and divide the almond cream between them.
- Top with a generous spoonful of sour cherry jam and scatter with flaked almonds to serve.
