  1. COMBINE the flour, oats, brown sugar, almonds and butter and mix well.

Bake in a moderate oven 180oC for 15 minutes. Place the remaining mixture on a paper lined baking tray and bake in a moderate oven 180oC for 15 minutes. Break up mixture on tray as it cools to make a crumble topping. Set aside.

  3. BAKE in a moderate oven 180oC for 35 minutes or until just set. Cool in the oven with door ajar. Chill.
