Cooks Tips:

You could try a different variation of Princes Fruit Fillings, such as Summer Fruits or Blackcurrant.

For speed, use frozen ready-to-cook vol-au-vent cases. They will be slightly smaller – though you can make more!

1 x 395g can Princes Apple Fruit Filling

500g pack ready-to-roll puff pastry

A little flour, for dusting

A little vegetable oil, for greasing

Method

  1. Tip the cans of Fruit Filling into two separate bowls.
  2. Preheat the oven to 220°C, fan oven 200°C, Gas Mark 7.
  3. Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured work surface. Use an 8cm cutter to stamp out 12 circles. Put these onto greased baking sheets. Using a 6cm cutter, press down lightly on each circle of pastry, without cutting right through, to make the borders. Brush the borders with the beaten egg mixture.
  4. Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes, until risen and golden brown. Cool.
  5. On each pastry case, carefully push the central pastry circle down to form a hollow. Fill half the tarts with Black Cherry Fruit Filling and the remainder with Apple Fruit Filling.

So good. So simple.
