Step by step recipe


Stage 1 - 4 min.

Preheat the oven to 430°F (220°C).

Roll out the puff pastry and cut circles about 3-4 inches (8-10 cm) diameter, allowing one per peson. A cutter is the best way to do this.

Lay the circles on a baking sheet and dust with icing sugar. Then lay a second baking sheet or wire rack on top to prevent them puffing up too much in the oven.

Stage 2 - 25 min.

Bake for about 25 minutes until the pastry is nicely browned. Set aside.

Stage 3 - 15 min.

Peel 3 peaches (use the same method as for tomatoes.

Slice each peach into 8 segments and trim off the inner edge of each one, as this can sometimes be rather hard where it was next to the stone.

Stage 4 - 4 min.
