2. Stamp out 4 large, even-sized circles from the ready-rolled puff pastry, and place the pastry discs on a greased baking sheet.

4. Brush the pastry discs finely with the beaten egg.


5. Layer the peach slices in a circle on the inner circle of pastry, taking care not to cover the rim. Dust evenly with icing sugar.
