Recipe: Rustic Apple Shortcake Squares...

I never tire of baking with apples and love to come across different recipes in which I can use them! This is one I have adapted from my mum's original apple traybake and  it actually turned out great! The addition of a layer of pastry gives it a nice crunchy bite when combined with the apple mix...


225g self raising flour
 125g  butter
125g  castor sugar
3 large eggs
3 large cooking apples : peeled diced and stewed
1 sheet of puff pastry
icing sugar to dust


Lightly grease a baking tray ( preferably one with a 1in deep lip) and spread your puff pastry in a single layer on the bottom of the tray .Stew the diced apples in a pot until soft, and spread evenly over the puff pastry. Mix the flour, sugar, butter and eggs in a bowl until well combined and pour the mixture over the apple and smooth with a palette knife or the back of a spoon.

Bake in a hot oven 180c for 45 mins until golden brown. Remove and leave to cool before dusting liberally with icing sugar! Cut into rough squares and serve .

Could also be used as a dessert served hot with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!

Happy Thursday!
