For the dough

    For the dough

How to proceed

    How to proceed
  1. Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough into a rectangle as thinly as possible, lifting and turning it to prevent it from sticking.
  2. Using the back of your hands, gently stretch the dough, working from the centre to the outside until it is paper thin.
  3. You should be able to read through the dough, but to do this takes years of practice and patience.
  4. Leave the dough to rest for 15 minutes.
  5. Melt the remaining butter and use most of it to brush all over the dough. Spread the filling on the dough to within 25 mm. (1") of the edges.
  6. Lift the two corners of the dough nearest to you and roll the dough away from you. Place the dough on a greased baking sheet and form into a horseshoe.
  7. Brush all over with the remaining melted butter.
  8. Bake in a preheated oven at 200 degree C (400 degree F) for 15 minutes, then lower the heat to 150 degree C (300 degree F) and bake for an additional 30 minutes.
  9. Serve warm or cold, dusted with icing sugar and cut into slices.
