Fruit Squares


12 oz mixed dried fruit of your choice (dates, apricots, raisins etc)
4 oz nuts (cashews, almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts or Brazil nuts)
4 oz desiccated coconut
Grated rind of 1 orange or lemon
A little orange juice
Extra desiccated coconut for coating


Process dried fruit mixture and nuts in a food processor until finely chopped.

Add coconut and grated rind of orange or lemon and process again, adding the orange juice to make a firm paste.

Sprinkle desiccated coconut in an 8inch square cake tin, press the fruit mixture into the tin and finish off with some more coconut. Press down well!
