Quick fruit pie

This recipe is great for improvising a last minute dessert. It basically is a tarte tartin for people like myself,  who don’t have an oven proof frying pan. You can make it with any fruit: apples, plums, pears, cherries, strawberries, pineapple. You can also go crazy with herbs and spices if you like. Think apple and cinnamon, pear and anise… I don’t know. Do whatever you like.

I had some plums in the freezer so I made plum pie.

puff pastry
spices (if you like)
sugar (if the fruit isn’t sweet enough)

Pre-heat the oven at 230C.

I defrosted the plums by putting them in a frying pan. If you use other fruits or fresh fruits, you might want to bake the fruit with a little sugar and the spices to caramelise it a bit.

Grease an oven dish. Pour or scoop the caramelised fruit into it. Cover it with puff pastry. Put in the oven until the pastry is golden brown. This takes 15-20 minutes in my oven.

Serve by turning over the pies on plates. Eat them wile they are warm. You can’t store these pies. The crust will go soggy.
