Saw this made last week & had to give it a try. Printed off this recipe & couldn't understand why there seemed less 'pastry'.... until I replayed the show.
Gary's recipe from the show is:-
225g butter
225g icing sugar
2 whole eggs
4 egg yolks
zest of 1 lemon (no mention of the juice)
1½ cups of flour
1½ cups of hazelnut or almond meal
judging from the replay, I'd say about ½ tsp cinnamon

(no egg for glazing - just not necessary)
Gary used a large piping bag to cover the base and sides of a fluted tart tin using the nozzle housing rather than a nozzle itself. This worked exceptionally well as the pastry/batter is very soft.
He used a large icing nozzle to pipe in the jam.
Whilst I had less batter/pastry than I would have had I followed the SHOW'S recipe, it still turned out ok. Next time (and there will be a next time - it was wonderful) I'll follow the recipe from the show.
