Scottish Fruit Slice/Fly Graveyard

Cheryl from 'What's for Tea' shows us her ' Fly Graveyard ' recipe. You can also use ready made shortcrust

Re: Melbourne Cup - 3rd November

Couldn't believe the fast finish of Prince of Arran. Another few yards and it could have came first. :roll: Just watched it. I was bemused by how Prince of Arran's jockey ran that race.
