Spicy, appley, buttery - the best choice of adjectives I can come up with to describe this luscious apple slice. So easy to put together, and fabulous dusted with icing sugar or drenched in thick sweet icing!

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Serves: 12 - 15

3 apples peeled, cored and diced
2 cups SR flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
125 g melted butter
1 egg

1 1/2 cups icing sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
boiling water

Pre heat oven to 170 degrees, grease and line a 20 x 30 cm slice tray. Allow the lining paper to extend over the sides to make the baked slice easy to remove.
Combine apples, flour, sugar and cinnamon in a large bowl.

Beat egg into cooled melted butter.

Stir butter mixture into apple mixture.
Press this firm mixture into the base of the lined tray.

Bake for 30 minutes or until nicely browned.

Cool in the tray and then ice.
Make icing by mixing icing sugar, vanilla extract and enough water to make a thick icing.
Spread over slice and when icing has set, turn slice out of tray and cut into squares.
