Method

  1. Step 1:

    In a large saucepan, place the chopped apples, blackberries, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla bean paste. Heat and simmer for 5-10 minutes until the apples become soft.

  2. Step 2:

    Remove from the heat and allow to cool.

  3. Step 3:

    Preheat the oven to 220°C (fan 200°C, gas mark 7).

  4. Step 4:

    Roll out two sheets of the puff pastry on to a lightly floured surface and quarter – forming four evenly sliced squares of pastry.

  5. Step 5:

    Spoon a few tablespoons of the fruit mixture into the centre of the square and then fold over to form a triangle.

  6. Step 6:

    Crimp the seals with a fork to help keep the shape when baking and reduce the filling spilling out.

  7. Step 7:

    With a knife create a few small vents in the top to allow the steam to be released.

  8. Step 8:

    Place on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Brush lightly with milk or beaten egg to glaze.

  9. Step 9:

    Bake in the oven for 10 minutes or until golden brown.

  10. Step 10:

    To serve, dust with icing sugar or a drizzle of custard.
