Coconut Jam Tartlets

Hertzoggies are very traditional 'Afrikaanse tertjies'.  A shortcrust pasty filled with apricot jam topped with coconut meringue.  Great to fill the cookie tins for holiday season!  Just don't expect them to last too long.  Normally my short crust pastry is too much for the topping so I added a second topping for left over crust. (see 'Accompanying Recipes'). They also make perfect gifts or could be packaged and sold from your home industry (tuisnywerheid).

Large Quantity Pizza Dough

Being a large family I don't make my pizza in round pans, as they waste space and time.  I make it in larger rectangular pans that fit exactly in my oven.  Because pizza is our family's unanimous favourite I make enough for at least two meals taking in consideration the time and effort that go in it.  I would either freeze the second portion or take the next day off cooking!  This amount makes about 12 - 14 thin crust, medium, round pizzas.  It fills at least 6 of my pans.
