Belleau Kitchen this month, which was baking. He also took the liberty to pick the random recipe, and I was smugly informed that the recipe was mixed nut slices, from the Hummingbird Bakery book - Cake Days. He was smug because this recipe involved my worst fear... pastry! I set about making the tray bake, which involved a variety of nuts held on with a syrupy sugary mixture, and battled with the pastry for a good 20 minutes. Rolling and re-rolling, it seemed to break whenever I attempted to lift it into the tray. The end result was a lovely sugary short crust with a sticky and crunchy topping.
Perfect with a cup of tea or for a summers picnic.
