- In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, salt, sugar and almonds. Rub in the 150g butter until the mixture is crumbly. Add egg, wine, rum and lemon zest. Mix gently until well blended. Adjust the flour if necessary to make a stiff dough. On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough briefly, shape into a ball, wrap in cling film and chill for at least 1 hour or until firm.
- Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
- On a floured surface, roll the dough out to less than 5mm in thickness. Brush with melted butter and cut into triangles about 8cm across. Place a small dot of jam along one side of each triangle and roll up from the jam end to the point. Seal with a bit of water if necessary. Place pastry horn onto an ungreased baking tray and brush with beaten egg yolk.
- Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until crisp and golden. Dust with icing sugar if desired.

My family absolutely loved these. I changed the filling to Lingonberry or Rasberry preserves, and they were gone soon as they were cool enough to eat!-21 Dec 2005
I've been making these for the past 3 Christmases, with seedless strawberry or blackberry preserves. They never last longer than a day in my house! Very delicious and pretty.-07 Jan 2011
