Serves: 10
Time to prepare: 10 mins
Time to cook: 25 mins
Dietary requirements: Dairy-free, Egg-free, Vegan

Ingredients

  • 1 x 500g/generous 1lb block vegan puff pastry (e.g. Jus-Rol)
  • 220g/7¾oz fruits of the forest, frozen
  • 30g/1oz caster sugar Apricot glaze
  • 2 tbsp apricot jam
  • 1 lemon, juice only
  • 100ml water

Garnish

  • A little icing sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/360°F/gas mark 4.
  2. Carefully roll out the pastry until it is 1cm thick. Using a scone cutter, approximately 10cm in diameter, cut out the pastry. Place your cut pastry onto a lined baking sheet.
  3. Place a small amount of frozen fruit in the centre of each pastry circle, and sprinkle with a little sugar. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the edges have risen and are golden.
  4. Carefully place on a cooling rack. While the pastries are baking, place all of the glaze ingredients into a saucepan. Heat gently until the apricot jam has melted.
  5. Finally, brush the cooked pastries with the glaze and dust with a little icing sugar.

CHEF’S TIP: have made these with many other fruits. Both frozen and fresh have worked well.
