Warme perentaart (warm pear tart)

Pears are not only delicious straight from the tree; this versatile autumnal fruit can also be used to rustle up a tempting range of sweet dishes, including our yummy warm pear tart – an utterly irresistible dessert or a tasty treat with your favourite cuppa!


4 slices of puff pastry
1 litre of tinned pears
6 tablespoons of apricot jam
2 tablespoons of lemon juice
4 tablespoons of brown sugar
A few tablespoons of flour

Dutch pear tart


First preheat your oven to 175C. Next defrost the puff pastry and roll out on a lightly floured kitchen work surface using a rolling pin. Now line an oven dish (of approx. 20 cm in diameter) with the puff pastry (folding the dough wherever it hangs over the edge) and lightly prick with a fork. Next mix the apricot jam with the lemon juice and use to coat the pastry. Cut the pears into slices and arrange them onto the pastry in an overlapping fashion. Sprinkle with sugar and then pop the pear tart into the oven for about 25 minutes or until golden brown. Finally, leave to cool for 5 to 10 minutes before serving with vanilla ice cream.
