Description

This version of the classic French dessert strays from the traditional vanilla custard filling. Chocolate and pears are the perfect combination in this simple dessert. A chocolate custard is studded with pears and then sandwiched between two layers of crisp puff pastry for a perfectly balanced dish. Almond flour adds a bit of nuttiness to the filling, which complements the chocolate and pears.
