"The DH has gone mad for apple slice but wants one that is close to what you can buy and he thinks this recipe's picture looked very close, so will be making very soon but will save here in the meantime. When I made this I filled it with fresh diced apples laced with cinnamon and ground cloves as the DH's still likes his apple to have a bit of bite and I had about 4 cups of fresh apple bits and it shrunk by more than half in the cooking process, though it tasted nice the pastry was a bit crumbly and not quite what DH was looking for but still going to give it another whirl but in a smaller slice pan so the pastry is a little thicker as for the big lamington pan it came out to thin."
