  • 320g pack Jus-Rol All Butter Puff Pastry Sheet
  • 300g pack cherries
  • 20g Essential Salted Butter
  • 60g light brown soft sugar


  1. Unpack the pastry according to pack instructions. Preheat the oven to 220ºC, gas mark 7.

  2. Remove the cherry stones, preferably using a cherry pitter rather than halving the fruit.

  3. Put 20g butter and 60g sugar into a 20cm heavy-based ovenproof frying pan. Melt and dissolve over a low heat, then bubble until a little darker in colour. Off the heat, add the cherries.

  4. Stretch the pastry a little thinner, then cut a 22cm disc. Lay this over the fruit and tuck the edges inside the pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the pastry is golden and crisp. Cool briefly, then invert onto a plate. Great served with crème fraîche.

Cook’s tip

If you don’t have a pitter, a reusable drinking straw works well instead. Push it through and out pops the stone. Save the pastry trimmings for another recipe.
