Pie in a pan
In a 20cm, deep, ovenproof pan, melt 100g butter. Stir in ¾ cup caster sugar, 2 tbsp brandy and ½ tsp vanilla. Simmer for 4 mins until edges are golden.
Arrange 5 peeled, cored, quartered apples in pan. Simmer for 4-5 mins, basting occasionally, until sauce has thickened.
Cover with 1 puff pastry circle. Tuck edges in. Bake in oven at 190°C for 25-30 mins until pastry is puffed and golden. Invert onto a plate. Serve with ice cream.
