2 Tbs cinnamon
1 tsp allspice
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp ginger
Freshly ground pepper
2 grated apples
100g butter

100g fine sugar

Fruit Mince:

It is best to make the fruit mince the day beforehand. Put all ingredients, except the apples, into a pot and simmer for 5-8 minutes until well combined and bubbling. Stir in the apple and cool.


Put softened butter into a mixer and beat until fluffy, add sugar and beat again until pale colour. Add eggs and mix well. Pour in flour and mix until just combined.

Tip out the dough and push together. Then pushed into a lined brownie pan until evenly spaced and flat. Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes to an hour.


Put all ingredients into a mixer with the flat mixing paddle. Mix till well combined, sticky and forming lumps, otherwise it will be too dry. If it is floury, add a little more butter to the mix.

Bake the pastry base blind until just golden. Cool slightly.

Top with fruit mince and crumble and bake for a further 30 minutes until golden and crispy. Cool and cut into desired sized slice pieces.
