500 ml (2 cups) all-purpose flour
125 ml (1/2 cup) Saputo unsalted butter, in cubes
60 ml (1/4 cup) sugar
5 ml (1 tsp) baking powder
200 g (2 cups) Saputo Triple Cheddar shredded cheese
30 ml (2 tbsp) water
250 ml (1 cup) apple jelly
45 g (3 tbsp) chopped pistachios
Preheat oven to 180˚C (350˚F).
In a food processor, pulse the flour, butter, sugar, baking powder, cheese and water until the mixture is crumbly.
Press half the dough into a 22 cm (9 in) square pan. Spread the apple jelly over the top.
Stir the pistachios into the remaining dough and spread evenly over the apple jelly, pressing gently.
Bake on the middle rack for 30 minutes.
Cool on the counter before cutting into bars.
Tip: Trying to eat less meat? Cheddar, with its complete proteins and high calcium content, is an excellent nutritional option. Pistachios are a good source of unsaturated fat.
