Serves

Makes 36 biscuits

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 roll frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 can  caramel
  • 120 g   SPAR cake flour (250 ml)
  • 125 g   SPAR full fat margarine
  • 125 ml SPAR castor sugar
  • 5 ml ground cinnamon

Recipe Method

  1. Preheat oven to 220 °C.  Lightly grease a large baking tin.
  2. Unroll the pastry length into the tin, and generously spread the caramel over.
  3. Process or rub the flour, margarine, castor sugar and cinnamon together to a ball of dough. Using a cheese grater, grate the dough directly over the caramel layer to evenly cover.
  4. Bake for 12-15 minutes until pastry has risen well and the topping is golden brown. Cut into squares and transfer to a cooling rack.  Store when completely cool and crisp. 

Hints & Tips

  • Cooked puff pastry does not store very well for a length of time, so these biscuits are best enjoyed within a day or so of making.
  • Caramel may be substituted with smooth apricot or strawberry jam.
