Recipe's preparation

    Apple filling
  1.  

    Place apple eighths into varoma dish and tray (if needed) add 500 g hot water to bowl, and place varoma into position, set timer for 10-15 minutes/ varoma/ speed 3, check apples after 10 minutes, when apples are just tender, remove cloves and lemon strip, set aside to cool. This step can be done in advance. Check your apples for sweetness, this is crucial. Add sugar if needed while they are cooling.

  2. Biscuit Pastry
  3. Heat oven to 190 degrees (no fan)

    Grease a tray of approx 27 cm by 18 cm

  4. Add all of the ingredients for pastry to the bowl in the order             specified, butter, sugar, flours and egg ( a large egg from a 700 g carton is best)

    Lock the lid, m/c in place, set timer for 10 seconds and speed 6.

    Open lid, scrape down the sides and repeat.

  5.  

    Take the pastry out of the bowl and onto your mat, press together until it is all one ball, dust with a little cornflour, wrap in the mat and place in fridge for 5 minutes.

    Cut the pastry in half. Using as little cornflour as possible, roll out one half to fit your tray. Instead of lifting the pastry to turn, lift the mat so that the pastry drops on its face and that way you can roll out the other side, use this method to place the pastry into your tray, pressing lightly to fit. Prick the base with a fork and pre bake for 5 minutes while you repeat with the remaining dough. It is normal for the pastry to puff up while baking.

    Take base out of oven, top with cooled apple filling and top with the remaining pastry, prick top with a fork and brush with milk to glaze.

  6.  

    Bake for approximtely 30-35 minutes  or until golden and biscuit pastry is cooked, you can test with a skewer.

    Sprinkle top with caster sugar and allow to become almost completely cold before cutting, you should get 12 servings.

    Enjoy with custard, ice cream or just as it is.

Tip

Apples are best steamed the day or night before you wish to make this slice. lemon peel and cloves are optional and just sit them on top of the apples in the varoma.

The mixing bowl must be cold or the butter (also cold) will get too hot and the dough will be too soft. Don't overprocess this pastry or the biscuit dough will not have the right texture.

Please taste your apples for tartness and add sugar to taste, all apples are different.

Canned Pie Apples are suitable for this recipe, about 500 grams is sufficient.

    I put the cloves and lemon rind in with the apples and took them out once they cooled down, I was worried about the cloves but it was a perfect taste. Loved this recipe, was nice cold also warmed. Delish...

    Is the cloves and lemon rind put in the water or are they sitting with the apples?
