  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. 
  2. Line 2 baking sheets with nonstick baking paper. Dust your work surface with flour, then roll the pastry out to a large rectangle with roughly the thickness of a 20p coin. Cut out 6 x 16cm-wide circles and place on the baking sheets (you may need to reroll the pastry); brush with egg and scatter with thyme.
  3. In a bowl, mix the cherries, 1 tbsp brown sugar, the flour, chocolate and pistachios.
  4. Spoon the mix onto the centre of the pastry and fold in the edges to cover the edges of the filling. Brush with egg; scatter over the remaining brown sugar. Chill for 15 mins.
  5. Bake for 25 mins until golden. Cool for 10 mins, then dust with icing sugar and serve with crème fraîche or ice cream, if you like.

Tip: To make this recipe cheaper, you can use frozen or drained tinned cherries instead of fresh.
