Thoughts to Entertaining.

Raspberry Nut Slice:

I doubled the quantities given....and made 2 slices.

210g butter
165g (3/4 cup) caster sugar
2t vanilla
200g flaked almonds (I only bought 100g as expensive)
40mL millk
225g plain flour
1/3 cornflour
1/2 cup raspberry jam.

Grease a 24cm x 20 cm baking tin.

Place 60g butter, 55g (1/4 cup) sugar and 1 t vanilla, the almonds and the milk in a saucepan to melt the butter. (I did it in the microwave). Remove

Shortbread base: place remaining butter, sugar and vanilla in bowl. Mix. Sift in flours. Press dough into tin. Bake for 10 min. Cool slightly. Spread jam over and then spread cooled almond mixture on top. Bake for 25-30 min till golden. (180 degrees).
