Mini Fruit Pies
Makes 12 normal muffin size pies
1 2/3 cups plain flour
2/3 cup almond meal
1/3 cup caster sugar
200g cold butter, diced
6 pieces of fruit..I used plums, apricots, nectarines and apples
Place flour, 1/3 cup almond meal and 1/4 cup sugar into the bowl.
Add 170g butter and blitz until its like breadcrumbs.
Add 1-2 tablespoons cold water until the mixture comes together.
Place on glad wrap and refrigerate for 20 minutes.
Preheat oven to 190 C.
Lightly grease a muffin tray.
Halve pieces of fruit.
Roll dough out ( I did a 1/4 at a time) until approx. 4mm thick. Cut out 10cm (approx.) circles.
Place piece of fruit, cut side down, onto the mat and lay a round of pastry over it.
Press well around the sides and then use an egg slice to turn over and place in the muffin tin..
Place remaining almond meal (1/3 cup) into the bowl. No need to wash.
Add the rest of the sugar, (just a little) and the butter (30g) and mix together.
Sprinkle this mix over the pies.
Bake for 25-30 minutes.

I found them very hard to get out as the pastry is so short. I ended up using 2 thermomix spatulas to do it.

This is from Woolworths Fresh magazine. We found them very nice.

May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.
