Boozy Pear Puff Pastry



A simple dessert that you can substitute your favorite Fustini's sweet balsamic. adapted from delicious.com


Step 1. 

Pour the wine into a large heavy-based saucepan, add the sugar and boil rapidly over high heat until the liquid has reduced to 1/4 cup – this should take around 25-30 minutes. Add the jam and stir until it has melted. Set aside.

Step 2. 

Lightly grease 2 baking sheets. Roll out pastry blocks on a lightly floured surface to two 11" x 15" rectangles. Lift each pastry rectangle onto a baking sheet and prick the pastry all over with a fork, leaving a 1" border around the edge. Place in the fridge to chill for at least 20 minutes. 

Step 3. 

Preheat the oven to 400°F.  Peel, core and thinly slice the pears. Arrange the pear slices, slightly overlapping, in rows over the pastry, still leaving a border around the edge. Sprinkle with the extra 3 tablespoons sugar, then bake the tarts for 35-40 minutes until the pastry is crisp and golden and the pears are lightly browned.  Remove the tarts from the oven. Warm the red-wine glaze and brush generously over the pears. Cut the tarts into rectangular pieces and serve warm, with creme fraiche if desired.

Customer Reviews

  1. Pear Dessert

    I have to to admit that pears are not my go to fruit for dessert, but this was great. Loved the cinnamon flavor with the wine glaze, and the whipped cream on top finished it off. Also, good the next day.
