Apple, plum and cinnamon skillet pie

Apple, plum and cinnamon skillet pie


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas Mark 4
  2. In an ovenproof frying pan, fry the apples and plums in the butter over a medium heat. Add in the honey, water, cinnamon and vanilla and turn down to a simmer. Cook for 7-10 mins or until thick and sticky. Allow to cool fully.
  3. Cut strips of pastry and arrange over the pan in a lattice style, alternating under and over to create a woven effect. Decorate with leaf shaped pastry around the edge.
  4. Brush with egg yolk and bake in the oven for 20-25 mins or until golden brown.
  5. Allow to sit for a few mins before serving.
