1.Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F.
2.Peel, core and thinly slice apples and pears. Combine fruit with juice, figs, caster sugar and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Divide fruit mixture into four shallow 1-cup (250ml) ovenproof dishes; cover with foil.
3.Bake for 10 minutes or until fruit starts to soften. Remove foil; top each dish with a scrunched sheet of pastry. Spray pastry with oil; bake for 30 minutes or until browned lightly.
4.Dust pies with sifted icing sugar; serve with ice-cream.

Swap the ice-cream for low-fat yoghurt, if you like. To make this as a single large pie, spoon the fruit mixture into a shallow 1-litre (4-cup) ovenproof dish. Scrunch the four sheets of pastry over the fruit mixture.
