DIRECTIONS

  • Set the oven to 425ºF or Mark 7.
  • Mix the melted butter, fruit, peel, sugar and spice together in a bowl, mixing well.
  • Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface and, using a saucer, cut into about 16 circles.
  • Divide the fruit mixture evenly between them, then dampen edges of the pastry circles and draw up into the center, sealing well.
  • Turn over, and with hands, gently form the cakes into ovals, then press down very gently with a rolling pin.
  • Make 3 diagonal cuts across the top of each cake, then brush with egg white and sprinkle with sugar.
  • Place on lightly greased baking trays and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden.
  • Serve slightly warm.
