Ingredients

Plum(s)

288 g, (buy 300g plums), stones removed, roughly chopped

Star anise

1 individual

Cinnamon quill

1 whole

Maple syrup

3 tsp

Reduced-fat puff pastry

2 individual, (2 x 170g), thawed

Egg(s)

1 medium, lightly beaten

Vanilla bean extract, alcohol free

1 tsp

Icing sugar

2 tsp

Instructions

  1. Combine plums, star anise, cinnamon, syrup and vanilla in a medium saucepan. Cook, covered, on low heat for 5 minutes, or until plums soften. Remove lid and continue cooking until mixture thickens and becomes sticky. Remove from heat and set aside to cool. Discard star anise and cinnamon.
  2. Preheat oven to 180°C. Line 2 bakings trays with baking paper. Cut each pastry sheet into 9 squares giving you 18 in total. Put even spoonfuls of the plum mixture into the centre of each pastry square. Lightly brush edges with egg. Fold over to form a triangle, pressing down edges to enclose filling. Place on prepared trays and lightly brush with egg. Repeat to make 17 more triangles. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until crisp and golden. Leave to cool for 10 minutes, then dust with icing sugar to serve.
