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.
spices (if you like)
sugar (if the fruit isn’t sweet enough)
Pre-heat the oven at 230C.
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.
