Crispy envelopes of pear in compote. Recipe
I like making pear compote a lot because it reinforces the flavor of this fruit a bit, which many times seems to need it. At this time when they are so delicious, we usually prepare crunchy envelopes of pear in compote that are ideal for a snack or to have a small dessert.
By the way, although I could have frozen it, it gave a good outlet to the leftover package of filo pastry that I had left from when we made the crunchy cheese and quince cigarettes, with a simple and delicious recipe.
Ingredients for 4 people
- Filo pastry, 2 pears, 3 tablespoons of sugar, 30 g of butter, water and an egg to varnish
How to make crunchy pear compote envelopes
To prepare the pear compote, --which this time I did not want to crush but leave with small pieces - we cut the pears into squares and put them to cook in a saucepan with the sugar and a splash of water. It doesn't take a lot of water because the pears will release enough. After eight minutes, we turn off the heat and let it cool.
We prepare the filo dough by varnishing it with butter. Then we are cutting small squares to make the shape of the envelope. We put a bit of our compote in the center of each square and we close the ends by folding them towards the center as you can see in the images.
Once all the packages have been formed, we place them on a silpat or baking tray covered with baking paper and lightly paint them with a little beaten egg to bake them at 190º until they are golden and crispy, which will take about 5 or 6 minutes .
We turn off the oven, take out our envelopes and let them cool on a rack so that they are very crisp when we go to eat them. Be careful that they keep the temperature a lot. To serve them, we sprinkle them with icing sugar.

You will like these crunchy pear compote envelopes simply sprinkled with a little icing sugar but if you want to try something unique, you can take them accompanied by a little sauce or raspberry coulis, dipping each envelope a little before giving it a bite. You'll see how good they are.
