1 egg plus 1 tbsp water, whisked for egg wash
100g raw sugar
1) Preheat oven to 210°C / gas mark 7.

Spread fig jam on crust leaving a 5cm border around the edges. Place plums on top of the jam. Fold edges over leaving the centre exposed and press slightly to seal. Brush outside of the dough with egg wash and sprinkle with sugar.
