Boxes and ingredients are packed in facilities that handles Peanut, Nuts, Sesame, Fish, Crustaceans, Milk, Egg, Mustard, Celery, Soya, Gluten and Sulphites.

The FSA have advised that allergic reactions to rapeseed oil are rare.

Not included in your delivery
a) Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7. Remove the puff pastry from your fridge and allow to come up to room temperature.
b) Zest and cut the lime into wedges.
c) Remove the pineapple from the tin, cut into small chunks and add to a medium bowl. Stir three-quarters of the desiccated coconut and three-quarters of the caramel sauce into the bowl.
d) Unroll the puff pastry, keeping the baking paper underneath. Slice once horizontally, then once vertically into 4 equal rectangles. Transfer the pastry with the baking paper to a baking tray.
a) On each pastry rectangle, place the pineapple mixture vertically in a long strip, just off-centre, leaving a 1cm gap at the top and bottom. Brush a little water along the sides of each rectangle.
b) To make your pies, fold the other side of the pastry lengthways over the filling. Press down lightly with a fork over the open sides to secure. Brush the top of each pie with a little water and sprinkle over half the sugar (see pantry for amount).
c) Make a few small slits across the top of the pastry to allow the steam to escape.
d) Bake on the middle shelf of the oven until puffed and golden, 12-15 mins. TIP: Rotate the baking tray halfway through baking to give your pies an even, golden colour.
a) Meanwhile, mix the creme fraiche, lime zest and the remaining sugar in a medium bowl. Whisk until thick, 1-2 mins.
b) When baked, remove the pies from the oven and allow to cool slightly, 5-10 mins. Drizzle over the remaining salted caramel sauce and sprinkle over the remaining desiccated coconut.
c) Serve the pies, warm or cold, with a dollop of zesty creme fraiche and the lime wedges for squeezing over.
