3 granny smith apples, peeled, cored and finely chopped
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 sheets of frozen shortcrust pastry, thawed
1 egg, lightly beaten

2. Put the dried peaches in a small bowl, pour 250 ml (9 fl oz/1 cup) boiling water over and leave to soak for 10 minutes.

3. Put the butter and sugar in a frying pan and stir over medium heat until the butter melts. Add the apple and cinnamonand cook, stirring frequently, for 3–4 minutes, or until the apple has softened. Drain the soaked peaches, stir them through the apple mixture and set aside to cool.
