Apple pie slice

This buttery apple pie slice is perfect for a picnic and tastes heavenly with whipped cinnamon cream.




1.Grease 20cm x 30cm (8 inch x 12 inch) lamington pan; line base and sides with baking paper, extending paper 5cm over long sides.
2.Sift flours into medium bowl; rub in butter. Stir in sugar, egg and enough milk to make a firm dough. Knead on floured surface until smooth. Cover; refrigerate 30 minutes.
3.Preheat oven to 200°C/400°F. To make apple pie filling, combine apple, sugar and the water in large saucepan; cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes or until apple softens. Remove from heat; stir in sultanas, spice and rind. Cool.
4.Divide dough in half. Roll one half large enough to cover base of pan; press firmly into pan. Spread apple filling over dough. Roll remaining dough large enough to cover filling and place over the top. Brush with extra milk; sprinkle with extra sugar. Bake about 25 minutes; cool slice in pan before cutting into squares.
5.Serve apple pie slice with whipped cream. Ground nutmeg or cinnamon tastes great stirred through the cream.

Apple filling can be made a day ahead; keep, covered, in the refrigerator. Slice is best baked on the morning of eating.
