Apple Flory -- a Puff Pastry Tart (Scotland)

Recipe by Sydney Mike
READY IN: 1hr 10mins




  • Peel, core & slice the apples & place them in a saucepan with the sugar & water, then cook them over medium-low heat until reduced to a pulp.
  • Mix in the cinnamon & zest & add more sugar if necessary.
  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Roll out the pastry thinly & use half of it to line a deep 8-inch pie plate.
  • Spoon in the apple mixture, then gently warm the marmalade to soften it before spreading it carefully over the apple filling.
  • Use the remaining pastry to make a top for the pie, & dampen the edges slightly before sealing them together completely & fluting them.
  • Roll out the trimmings from the puff pastry & make pastry leaves or other decorative items for the top of the tart.
  • Brush the top with milk & bake in the hot oven for 10 minutes, before reducing the oven's temperature to 375 degrees F, & bake the tart another 20-25 minutes, or until well risen & golden brown.
  • Serve warm with cream.
