Description

Want a dessert that is just made for the wintertime? Look no further than this recipe for Pear Puff Pastry with Mint and Cassis. Delicate puff pastry pockets are filled with a mint and cassis liqueur sauce and a pear half and then sealed. Baked until golden with sliced almonds on top, these Pear Puff Pastries are full of warm sweet flavor. Serve as a tasty dessert on their own or alongside creamy vanilla bean ice cream.

Ingredients

  • 2 servings
  • 80 grams puff pastry
  • 2 pears (Rocha)
  • 4 mint leaves
  • 2 teaspoons dark brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cassis
  • liqueur
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 egg yolks
  • almonds (to taste)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. On a floured surface, roll out the puff pastry, and cut out 4 squares 10 centimeters long by 10 centimeters wide, as pictured.
  3. Peel the pear without removing the stem, and use a knife to slightly cut the back of the pear so as to be able to lie flat on the dough. Set aside.
  4. In a mortar, place the mint leaves and sugar, and crush a little. Add the Cassis liqueur and lemon, stir well until you get a very dark homogeneous liquid.
  5. Place the liquid in the base of the puff pastry, then the pear, and the remaining liquid on top.
  6. Close the pastry with the other rectangle on top, and press edges with a fork or fingertips.
  7. Brush the dough with the egg yolk, and put almonds on top.
  8. Bake for about 25 minutes, or until well browned as in the image.
