Roll out 200 g Puff or flaky pastry (pâte feuilletée) into a circle about 8 inches (20 cm) diameter.

Lay a sheet of cooking parchment on a baking sheet and sprinkle with brown sugar.

Lay the pastry circle on top. This will give the pastry a lovely caramelized underside.

Finishing the baking on a wire rack in stage 10 is not essential, but will give you the really crisp base that is often tricky to achieve with puff pastry.
