Pear cupcakes recipe. Desserts


I was walking with little time to cook a very rich and very apparent dessert, I had to "impress"To some guests, those unexpected and without warning, and without giving me time to run out to buy, not one or a hundred thousand ingredients, and already a little bit nervous, because I could not think of anything interesting with the ingredients that I had at home, I remembered that I had some frozen puff pastry sheets and I found the perfect idea to take advantage of some pears that I had for 4 days, pear cakes.

Surely with another more bombastic name, they would look much better on the net, but thanks to their taste and their appearance they could not look better at the table.

The ingredients

1/4 of frozen puff pastry, 4 pears, 80 grams of sugar, 80 grams of ground almonds, icing sugar, 1 egg yolk and a teaspoon of sugar.

Preparing the pear cupcakes

Let the puff pastry defrost, spread it on a flat surface and with a round or square pasta cutter (to taste) of about 10 or 12 cm in diameter more or less, cut 8 pieces.

We mix the egg yolk and the spoonful of sugar. Brush the puff pastry discs with the sweet yolk. We put it in the oven previously heated to about 220ºC for about 10 minutes, or until the puff pastry is cooked and the part painted with the egg, slightly golden.

Peel and cut the pears into small cubes, put them in a pot or pan and put them on the fire, together with the 80 grams of sugar and 4 tablespoons of water. Let it boil for approximately 20 or 30 minutes. Let it cool a bit and add the ground almonds and stir it.

Preparation time | 20 minutes Cook time | 45 minutes Difficulty | Low

The tasting

Assemble the pear cakes, placing a cooked puff pastry plate at the bottom of the plate, on top a few tablespoons of the pear and almond mixture, another puff pastry plate and finally decorate by sprinkling with icing sugar.

We can serve this dessert both cold and warm.
