Sorry Roger, I have never heard of them!

Paradise Slices

Line oblong tin with 6 ozs of short crust pastry. Spread thinly with jam. Spread over the following mixture:

4 ozs. caster sugar
3 – 4 ozs. margarine
1 egg (I used large)
1 teacup sultanas
2 tbsps. of chopped cherries (I probably used more, Mike thought too many)
2 tbsps. of almonds or walnuts (or as many as you like - I just used a bag full).
2 tbsps. ground rice **
2 tbsps. ground almonds
almond extract

Beat sugar, margarine and egg together; add fruits, nuts, ground rice and ground almonds and extract.

Spread over the top of the jam.

Bake No 4 Gas. Elec. 350 F. or 180 C. For 30 – 35 minutes.

When cool, sprinkle with caster sugar and cut into fingers or squares.

Good Luck……

**Found near the rice pudding rice in Tescos!

I might try that recipe Honey, sounds nice. I knew I'd seen the title of that recipe somewhere in my pile of cook books.
Found it in "Farmhouse Kitchen" book 3 from 1982. They called it Paradise Bars. It uses currants instead of sultanas and no nuts.
Watching that programme on tv in the afternoons brings back happy times.
