3) Turn the Temperature Dial to 200°C CONVECTION

5) Line a baking tray with baking paper. Cut the pastry so it forms a

large circle. Prick the centre of the pastry with a fork, this helps the

crust release steam and become crisp.

lemon and gently toss to coat the plums in the mixture.

around the edge.

8) Whisk together the egg and 1 tablespoon water, brush the egg wash

around the border. Bake the tart for 16 minutes or until crisp golden.

a sieve over the top of the hot tart and serve.
