Instructions
  1. Grease and flour (or line) a 33 x 23 cm baking tin.
  2. To make the dough, mix all the dough ingredients together, preferably in a food processor, until it forms a soft dough.
  3. Divide the dough into two parts: two-thirds and one-third. Wrap the smaller portion in plastic wrap and put in the freezer for 2 – 3 hours.
  4. Press the remaining two-third portion of dough into the base of the prepared tin so it is evenly distributed.
  5. Preheat the oven to 200℃ (375℉).
  6. To make the filling, place all filling ingredients in a food processor and process until a paste is formed. Spread evenly on the base dough.
  7. Using the coarse side of a grater, grate the frozen dough over the filling.
  8. Bake for 20 – 25 minutes, or until the crumbs become golden. Allow to cool then cut into diamonds or squares. Sprinkle with icing sugar before serving. Keeps well in an airtight container.
