This recipe is so simple, I'm not sure it really counts as actual cooking!
Juicy, jammy plums lightly spiced with cinnamon, vanilla and star anise, wrapped in flaking puff pastry and crunchy almonds. Delicious, warm out the oven or room temperature. Could be a dessert or breakfast pastry for friends and family, you decide.
I used shop brought puff pastry, as long as you don‘t buy the ‘all butter‘ type it should be vegan. You can also buy a gluten-free version now too.
It‘s basically assembling the ingredients together and baking, you can use the same recipe with so may other fruits and depending on the time of year mix up the spices too.
