Pear Tart Recipe


  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed but not room temperature
  • 3-4 medium size ripe pears (red or yellow), cored and thinly sliced
  • 1 medium egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • salt (either flaked or large crystallized)
  • whipped cream


  1. Heat oven to 400. Unfold pastry onto parchment paper, roll pastry out about 1/2-3/4 inch bigger all around. Slide pastry on parchment onto baking sheet.
  2. Arrange pears on the pastry, leaving about 1/2 inch border all around. Brush the border with the beaten egg, sprinkle entire tart with sugar. Bake 20 minutes.
  3. Reduce oven to 350 and continue baking for about 10-15 additional minutes, until crust is brown and pears are tender but not mushy.
  4. As tart is baking, simmer syrup until reduced by half, about 12-15 minutes. Drizzle over entire tart and then sprinkle with flaked salt. Let cool 15-20 minutes.
  5. Serve with whipped cream.
