Anne, this is a very simple to do recipe, but please, don't tell anyone, I've been bragging about how good one must be around kitchen to be able to pull this off. And always ask for large compensation from anyone trying this amazing cookie :)
- 1 cup oil (apx 150 ml)
- 1 cup of sugar
- half of cup sparkling water (mineral water)
- 1 teaspoon vinegar extinguished with 1 teaspoon baking powder
- apx 400 grams of plain flower to start with. The dough may require some more flower.
Dust flower on your hands and knead for about 10 minutes, adding flower as necessary. Make a ball of dough and split in two.
On the working table put some baking paper, sprinkle some flower and begin to stretch first ball of dough to the size of the tray. Transfer it into the greased and flowered tray. Make the second sheet that you'll use after placing the apple filling.
Place the apple filling and cover with the second sheet. Because the dough is crumbling you'll understand why it is necessary to make the sheet on the baking paper...
Put the tray in the oven on 180 degree (Celsius. For you Anne is 350 Fahrenheit) for 30 minutes. Check to have a nice golden look before leave it to cold.
Sprinkle a white coat of powered sugar and cut into peaces after 15 minutes. Serve to Richard and tell'im I want to share a pint.
