- Place cream, sugar and vanilla in a small saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until sugar dissolves and mixture is heated through.

- Meanwhile, preheat oven to 200°C or 180°C fan-forced. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Place flour in a medium bowl. Rub in canola spread with fingers until crumbly.
