  • Servings

    12 squares

INGREDIENTS

  • 4-5 envy™ apples
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla paste
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon cornflour + 2 tablespoons water
  • 115g butter, softened
  • ½ cup caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 11/2 cups self-raising flour
  • ¼ cup cornflour

METHOD

  • Pre-heat the oven to 185 degrees and lightly grease and line the base and up the sides (this will help when removing from the tin) of a large square or rectangle tin approx. 24-26 cm
  • Peel, core and dice envy™ apples into even pieces
  • Combine envy™ apple pieces in a saucepan with the ¼ cup sugar, vanilla and lemon zest and simmer for 4-5 minutes or until just tender
  • Combine the first measure of corn flour and water and stir into the envy™ apples, continue stirring until thickened and syrupy, set aside to cool
  • Using an electric beater, cream the butter and sugar for 3-4 minutes until creamy and pale
  • Add the egg and beat well
  • Sift over the flour and cinnamon and fold all together to create a soft dough
  • Divide the mixture in half and wrap in cling film then chill for 30 minutes
  • Press one half of the shortcake dough into the base of the lined tin, using the back of a spoon or damp finger tips to spread out evenly.
  • Spoon over the cooled envy™ apple mixture
  • Using the remaining dough, break into small bite size pieces and dot all over the top of the envy™ apples
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown, allow to cool before lifting out using the baking paper sides and cut into portions, dust with icing sugar if desired
