Plum Tarts, the perfect mid-afternoon pick-me-up, taken from Just For One Or Two cookbook.
Puff pastry 125g (5oz)
Ripe plums 175g (6oz), pitted and thickly sliced
Milk 1 tsp
Redcurrant jelly or strawberry jam 2 tsp, warmed
Icing sugar for dusting
Preheat the oven to 220°C/425°F/Gas 7. Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surfaced to a rectangle measuring 20 x 12.5cm (8 x 5in). Cut it into two smaller 10 x 12.5cm (4 x 5in) rectangles.
Put the pastries on a wetted baking sheet. Knock up the edges with the edge of a knife and flute them between your finger and thumb.
Arrange the plum pieces on each pastry slice, leaving a small border. Brush the edges with milk.
Cook for 15–18 minutes or until the pastries are browned. Brush with the jelly or jam, then dust with icing sugar and serve warm.
