Caramel Walnut Slice

IMG_2374

Another slice recipe! This recipe is adapted from the May 2014 issue of delicious. magazine in a feature on slices. A caramel topping, crunchy with chopped walnuts, on top of a pastry base. The topping is a little bit soft and gooey, making it almost like a walnut tart.

Perhaps I’ll try converting the slice into a tart next!

Ingredients

Base

125g softened butter

2 tbls icing sugar

150g self raising flour

Topping

2 eggs

250g brown sugar

100g walnuts, chopped

90g desiccated coconut

2 tbls extra flour

Method

Preheat oven to 170degrees C. Line a 20cm square baking tin with baking paper, leaving an overhang of paper on the sides.

Combine the base ingredients in a food processor and whizz until a soft pastry like dough forms.

Press the dough into the baking tin and bake for 15-20 minutes until just golden brown.

Whisk together the eggs and brown sugar until the sugar is dissolved. Add in remaining ingredients and stir to combine. Pour the mixture over the baked base, return to the oven and bake for about 20-30 minutes or until the topping is set.

Cool in the baking tin then cut into slices to serve.
