Melt butter in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Place apple in pan and cook, turning, for 3 to 4 minutes or until golden. Add sugar and 2 tablespoons cold water. Stir for 2 to 3 minutes or until sugar has dissolved. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low. Simmer for 2 to 3 minutes or until slightly thickened.
Arrange apple in prepared pan. Spoon over sugar mixture. Cut a 22cm square from pastry. Lightly place pastry over apple, tucking in at edge. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden and puffed. Stand in pan 5 minutes. Turn out onto a plate. Serve with vanilla ice cream.
