Serves 8

What you need

  • 30g butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 10 firm plums, halved and stone removed
  • 100g ground hazelnuts
  • 1 cup (125g) plain flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 125g PHILADELPHIA Block Cream Cheese, cut into cubes
  • 60g unsalted butter, chilled and chopped
  • 1 egg white, lightly beaten

How to make it

  1. MELT the butter and brown sugar in a frypan until smooth. Add plums, cut side down and cook over low heat for 5 minutes or until soft. Allow to cool.
  2. PLACE the hazelnuts, flour, sugar, PHILLY and butter in a food processor, then process until dough just comes together. Knead lightly, and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate until firm.
  3. ROLL pastry out into a 32cm circle. Transfer to a lined baking tray. Brush pastry lightly with egg white. Arrange the plums, cut-side up over the pastry leaving a 5cm border, drizzle with remaining syrup. Fold the pastry edge over the plums, pleating the excess pastry as you go.
  4. BAKE at 200°C for 15-20 minutes or until pastry is golden and plum has warmed through. Serve warm.
