  1. To make the pastry :

    Rub the butter into the flour. Add the sugar, cinnamon, water and egg yolk. Mix well and refrigerate for 20 minutes.

    Make a caramel by melting the caster sugar in a heavy based pan and then pour into a non-stick tatin mould. Peel, halve and core the apples. Drizzle the honey over the caramel and place the apples and the butter on top. Cook for 20 minutes in a pre-heated oven at 170°/180°C.
  2. For the sorbet :

    Bring the water, sugar, vanilla and wine to the boil in a large saucepan. In another saucepan cook the red fruits with a little water and the vanilla. Strain the juices from the red fruits into the wine mixture and bring back to the boil. Add the fruit and let stand for 5 minutes to infuse thoroughly, the put into a sorbet machine.

    Roll out the pastry and place over the apples and cook for a further 20 minutes. Remove from the mould whilst still warm, but not hot. Serve accompanied with whipped cream and decorate with mint leaves and chocolate.
