I have a yen to make one of those fruit pie thingys where all the fruit is just piled into the centre of a piece of pastry and then the edges of the pastry are just kind of roughly & messily folded up over the edges. Does anyone a) know what I mean and b) know how I can make one?

Many thanks!

200g plain flour into a bowl, rub in 125g butter with fingertips until like breadcumbs.

STir in approx. 2 tblsp water to make a ball - chill while your do fruit.

800g fruit (plums, damsons, apples, blackberries etc.) Cut pllums in half, take stones out, apples cored, quatered and sliced.

Oven 200C/400F/ gas 6.

Roll our pastry and put on baking sheet, small roasting tin oro 25cm pie plate (metal)

Dump fruit in middle, sprinkel with 75-90g sugar, fold pastry over fruit as far as they will go, not quite meeting in middle.. Brush with milk or egg white, sprinkle more sugar, bake for approx. 40mins.
