i was browsing all the blogs i sub to this morning....(looking for motivation to actually do something today!lol) when i spied that Chrissy had thrown out a challenge to bake something and share a recipe...(well i took it as a challenge! lol) she shared a recipe for some beautiful looking cookies (that are freezer friendly!) that i am sooo going to make this week sometime...anyways...i made a yummy apple slice for lunchboxes last night so i thought i would share...
its quite an old recipe ( well 1995!) from a family circle test kitchen cookbook mum used to bake from when i was a still at home.
1 cup plain flour, 1 cup SR flour, 155g butter,1/2 cup caster sugar, 1 tsp vanilla essence,1 egg, bit of milk if needed, 8oog tin pie apple, extra sugar for sprinkling.
preheat oven to 180 degrees, line a slice tin .
sift flours together. beat butter and sugar in a small bowl until light and fluffy.add vanilla and egg, beat well. gently fold in flours. if mixture is too dry add a little milk to make a soft pastry.
turn onto a lightly floured board and push together until just smooth. divide dough in half, cover with cling wrap and put in fridge for 30 mins.
roll out each bit of pastry to fit the tin. put 1 piece of pastry in tin as the base. spread with the pie apple, top with the second sheet of pastry. sprinkle the top with some sugar.
bake for 35 minutes or until golden. leave in tin for 20 minutes before lifting out. cut into squares to serve.
thats it! how easy is that! and it is soooooo yummy!!!
will try to be posting as bit more regulary from now on again
