  • 250g ready-made block puff pastry
  • Flour, to roll out
  • 2 x 250g pots Asda Mascarpone
  • 4 passion fruit, halved
  • Icing sugar, to taste
  • 1 small, ripe pineapple
  • 5 level tbsp apricot jam
  • Pre-heat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6. Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface to form a rectangle 35cm x 14cm. Mark a picture frame-style border round the pastry with a knife, then prick the inside of the border with a fork. Put on a baking tray and chill in the fridge for 20 minutes.

  • Bake for 10-15 minutes or until cooked. If the centre rises up, gently push it down and return to the oven for a few minutes to dry out. Leave to cool, then transfer to a serving plate.

  • Beat the mascarpone with the passion fruit pulp until soft and creamy, and sweeten with a little icing sugar. Pile the mixture into the cooled pastry case.

  • Peel the pineapple and cut into quarters lengthways. Remove the core and cut into long, thin slices.

  • Heat the jam in a pan with a splash of water, then strain.

  • Arrange the pineapple slices over the passion fruit cream and brush lightly with the jam glaze.
