Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground cardamom
  • pinch nutmeg
  • pinch salt
  • 1 roll puff pastry, thawed
  • 5 pcs small pears, peeled, cored, halved and cut into thin slices
  • 1 egg, beated
  • 1 & 1/2 tbsp butter, cut into bits

Instructions

  • Start by preheating your oven to 200°C (375°F).
  • Using a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, cinnamon powder, ground cardamom, nutmeg, and salt.  Set aside.
  • Unroll the puff pastry on a flat surface and cut it into 9 (almost equal) portions.
  • Place them on top of a tray lined with a baking sheet, then brush each portion with the beaten egg.
  • Sprinkle some off the spices and sugar mixture, avoiding the sides of the pastry.
  • Arrange a halved, sliced pear in the middle of the pastry.
  • Sprinkle more of the sugar and spices mixture on top of the pear.
  • Dot each pear with two bits of butter.
  • Place the tray in the middle of the oven for 18 to 20 minutes, or until the top has turned golden.
  • Sprinkle some powdered sugar on your pear tart with puff pastry, if desired.
  • Serve.

Notes

  • Cook's Tip #1:  Ensure that the puff pastry is completely thawed before you start to unroll it.  A light dusting of flour on top of the flat surface and top of the puff pastry will help keep it dry.
  • Cook's Tip #2:  Cut the pears into thin slices.  The thinner they are sliced, the quicker they will be cooked in the oven.
  • Cook's Tip #3:  Do not put too much butter on top of the pears; just enough to help cook the pears.
