Fruit Pie

Thinly slice your fruit. Most fruit will work. We love it with apples, pears, and berries!

Pile the fruit into the middle of a sheet of puff pastry and sprinkle with sugar.

Fold the edges of the pastry in to enclose the edges of the fruit.

Bake your pie at 190c for 30-35 minutes until the pastry is golden brown.

Enjoy as is or with a drizzle of cream and a scoop of ice cream!
