General Info

20 Minutes
Serves: 20 Squares

Ingredients

250 g / 2 cups SUPREME Cake Wheat Flour
Pinch of salt
5 ml / 1 teaspoon Baking powder
225g Butter
1 Egg
60 ml / ¼ cup Water
5 ml / 1 teaspoon Vanilla essence
Apricot jam for spreading

Recipe Instructions

Pre-heat the oven to 180°C.

Sieve all the dry ingredients together. Rub the butter into the mixture until it resembles breadcrumbs.

Beat the egg, water & vanilla essence together and add to the flour/butter mixture. Mix until they have formed a tight dough. Reserve about a quarter of the dough and store in the freezer.

Press the remaining dough into a greased baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes.

Remove from the oven and use a pastry brush to spread on the desired amount of apricot jam, then grate the reserved frozen dough over the cooked dough, taking care not to spread it too thickly.

Put the tray back in the oven for a further 20 minutes until golden. Remove from the oven, allow to cool and cut into squares.
