- Pour the mixture out onto an oiled work surface and spread into a thin layer with an oiled rolling pin.
- Cool, then grind coarsely in a blender to make a nougatine.

- Remove the parchment and roll up the sponge in the towel. Let cool.
- Unroll the sponge. Spread with the raspberry jelly and sprinkle with one-third of the pistachio nougatine, then roll up tightly.
