Method

30 mins
 
Preheat the oven to 200 ºC (400 ºF) . Spray a 23 x 13 cm baking sheet with non-stick spray. Mix the cake flour, butter and salt in a food processor until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add the eggs and cold water and mix until the dough forms a ball around the blade. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill for 30 minutes. Roll out the pastry and line the bottom of the prepared baking sheet. Prick with a fork. Line the pastry with a layer of baking paper and cover with dried beans or rice. Bake for 15 minutes or until the crust is golden. Remove the beans and paper and cool. Sprinkle the glacé cherries and apricots over the crust. Cream the butter until pale and fluffy and add small quantities of the castor sugar while beating continuously. Add the almonds, almond essence and self-raising flour, mixing thoroughly. Add the egg whites and spread over the cherries and apricots. Sprinkle with coconut and bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool and cut into slices. Wrap individually in plastic wrap. Makes 15 slices.
