4 oz (100 g) puff or flaky pastry
2 tbsp (1 oz) 25 g butter, softened
2 tbsp (23 g) soft brown sugar

1. Roll out the pastry thinly and cut into 9-cm (3 1/2-inch) rounds.

2. Mix together the ingredients for the filling and place a small spoonful of mixture in the centre of each pastry round.

5. Brush with egg white and dredge with caster sugar.

6. Bake in the oven at 230°C (450°F) mark 8 for about 15 minutes until golden.

7. Leave to cool on a wire rack.
