Ruth bought this along to a little afternoon tea we had - it was still warm! Love her duck-shaped measuring cups as well.

8oz flour
1 tsp baking powder
4oz butter
1 egg
1 dessert spoon sugar
milk - a few spoonfuls
cooked (or tinned) apricots - maybe 10 small ones
Rub butter into flour and baking powder. Mix in egg and sugar. Add a spoon or two of milk to make a light pastry. Cut the dough into two parts and roll out each. Place one on a tray and spread the cooked apricots on top. Lay the second bit of pastry on top.
Cover with tin foil and bake at 180C for 20 - 30 minutes.
Sprinkle with icing sugar when cold.
