Passionfruit Slice

I know that this might not seem like a very Christmasy recipe, BUT passionfruit are in season at the moment and this is the only time I get to eat this slice.

Kaz is a friend of mine from High School… Yes we have known each other that long and are still friends! Every Christmas Kaz has holidays around this time and we all get together at her house for a morning tea… ALL the kids hang out in the pool and we sit and chat… Well normally Kaz makes this slice, usually at my request, so this year…. I decided that I needed the recipe and I would make it because we had so many passionfruit that fell of the vine after a big storm a week ago and I had to do something with them!

We only went from 10:30am till 1:30pm today, so that is why the blog is a bit late as I didn’t have time to post it this morning as I had to get to the morning tea.

The interesting thing is that this year there was some Chocolate Chip Short bread that looked very familiar and also some brownies that I had seen before… so even if now one else is making the recipes that I put up, my girlfriends are 🙂

I’m always so thankful for this time of year that even though I am still single and I may not have any children of my own, I have wonderful friends that love on me, encourage me and share their kids with me! I am very blessed!

This recipe is very easily halved if you don’t want to make a big tin of it!

So enjoy this delicious slice, that even though it is sweet, will have you coming back for more and more!

Merry Christmas and ENJOY!
