Apple and Berry Slice

Leave a comment

Tangy and tart and sweet, the best of all worlds. This fruity slice would make a wonderful dessert teamed with vanilla ice cream, a blob of clotted cream or even custard. I love cooked apple and the berries added an extra tartness that was definitely welcome.

I used frozen berries, a mixture of strawberries, blackberries, blueberries and raspberries.

 

Apple and Berry Slice

375g Plain Flour
185g Butter
