Ingredients 14
Servings 12


  • 100
    cake flour
  • pinch salt
  • 60
  • 25
    castor sugar
  • 1
    egg yolk
  • iced water
  • flour for dusting
  • 8
    green apples, peeled and cored
  • 100
    cheese, grated
  • 125
    golden syrup
  • milk for glazing
  • brown sugar


1. PASTRY: Sift together the flour and salt. Cut the butter into small pieces and rub into the flour until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Mix in the sugar, then the egg yolk, and enough cold water to make a stiff dough. Press together to form a ball, wrap and chill for 30 minutes. 2. Divide the pastry in half and roll out into two rectangles to fit a baking tray 37 x 26 cm. Lay 1 rectangle in the greased baking tray. Slice the apples into thin rounds. Warm the syrup to pouring consistency. 3. FILLING: Lay the apples slices over the pastry, leaving 1 cm uncovered around the edge. Pour a little syrup over the apples without allowing the syrup to run onto the edges. Scatter the cheese over the syrup. 4. Brush the uncovered edge with milk and cover with the second rectangle of pastry. Press the edges together to seal. Brush the surface lightly with milk, and remaining golden syrup. Sprinkle lightly with sugar. Bake in preheated 220 ºC oven for 10 minutes, reduce heat to 180 ºC and bake for a further 20 minutes. Cut into 12 squares and serve hot or cold. Makes 12
