Dessert time

After a delicious dessert that easy too?
Last week I made these yummy pears on puff pastry...
but apples, peaches or apricots work just as well!
In a bowl combine  2 peeled and sliced pears.  
Add 1 teaspoon vanilla essence, a sprinkle of ground cloves, 
1 teaspoon of castor sugar and a dash of lemon juice.  
Line a baking tray with baking paper and using a saucer or small plate as a guide, 
cut 2 rounds of puff pastry out and place on the tray.  
Place the pears in a circle and brush with egg wash or melted butter, 
then bake in a 200 degree oven until the edges puff up and go slightly golden in colour.  
Perfect served hot with icecream or at room temperature 
with some double cream and a cup of tea!

  1. They look super yummy! I might have to give it a try. Am fond of anything with apple or pears, and pastry!
