¼ cup melted butter (60g)
1 egg, lightly beaten
1½ cup diced dried apricot

Preheat oven to 180ºC (350ºF).

- Meanwhile, combine all of the filling ingredients in a saucepan. Simmer until the mixture is thick and apricot is tender. Put aside to cool.
- Divide the dough into half. Roll each half into a rectangle 25cm x 20cm (10" x 8") in size.
- Place one of the rolled dough diagonally on a large greased baking tray.
