Easy, quick, versatile and tasty! I found this recipe in an old cook book I picked up in a charity shop years ago. This is now my 'default' desert recipe. Use it over your favourite fruits. A couple of tips: Quantities: Flour:Butter:Sugar=2:1:1 (e.g. 6oz flour to 3oz butter and 3oz sugar). Stick to the order in which ingredients are added as described below (flour, then butter, then sugar). Vanilla sugar gives the recipe extra flavour as does a drop of vanilla extract before adding the sugar. The mix is quite sweet on its own so when preparing the filling don't over-sweeten. Enjoy!
