Delicious Fruit Treat

I’m back from my summer break and ready to spoil you with a deliciously fruity treat. Something to enjoy while you relax in some of the last rays of summer. But beware! It has addiction potential…

The Ingredients
The Dough
200g/ 1Cup flour
2tbsp icing sugar
100g/ 0.5Cup butter
55ml water
1tsp salt
The Filling
2 apples
6 plums
100g/ 0.5Cup blackberries
3tbsp brown sugar
1tbsp corn starch
The Topping
milk to brush the edges
2tbsp sugar
0.5tsp cinnamon

Preheat the oven at 200°C (392°F). Mix the ingredients of the dough together and leave to chill in the fridge for about an hour.
Wash and prepare the fruit (slice the apples and the plums). Add the Sugar and Corn starch and mix carefully. Roll the dough out to a circle of about 30cm diameter. Put the filling in the middle leaving a rim of about 3-4cm. Fold the edge in over the filling. Brush the overlapping dough with milk and sprinkle the sugar and cinnamon over it. Place in the oven for about 20-25 minutes until the edges become golden brown.

Now find yourself a cosy spot, maybe a good read and indulge yourself with your well deserved treat…(well you’ve got the washing up to do later)

    • Thanks Mike! It’s great to be back.
      We’ve enjoyed a very eventful summer with lots of hiking, biking and running in Silvaplana.
      The kids have been very busy with their surfing, the younger two wind surfing and the older one kite surfing. I think I’ll have to start soon. 😉
