Apple Cheesecake Strudel Slice and Tim Tam Strawberry Champagne Slice

As I said in my previous blog due to my disappointment with the chocolate orange cake I decided to make a couple of slices, one for the MOTH, the other for work. I did a search on Google for the “best “ slices and found the following two slices  on Food to Love. Of all the slices i looked at  it was the pictures of these two that  were enough to tempt me.

I decided to triple the Tim Tam Strawberry Champagne Slice  as I am hoping to make enough for 40 people and the MOTH wanted some as well. Oh no not enough to have just the Apple Cheesecake Strudel Slice for him. He wanted both. So off to the supermarket for 4 tins of sweeten condensed milk and 3 packets of Tim Tam biscuits. I searched 3 supermarkets for the Strawberry Champagne Tim Tams and after getting soaked in the rain each time (Think rain bomb. And NO I don’t own a rain coat! And NO I don’t want one either! I feel and look like a Telly Tubby in them.) I gave up and settled for regular Tim Tams. They worked just fine!

Feel free to substitute fresh strawberries for freeze-dried ones or do a combination of both like I did.

I liked the Apple Cheese Strudel Slice better – not as sweet as the Tim Tam Strawberry Slice. The MOTH also agreed that it was too sweet. One of the factors for this was I made the MOTH’s slice in a small bread tin so the filling was twice as deep as it should have been – don’t do it!  I hope the balance is better in the one I made for staff!

Both recipes are taken from Foodtolove.co.nz and here are the links.
