Sweet and oh so easy!...

I made this wonderful pear tart a while back and meant to post the recipe. It so easy, fast and turns out delicious. Of course, any fruit you like could be used. I think if I were using fresh I'd add a little more sugar but with this basic pastry canvas you could use whatever you like. Oh, I didn't need all of the butter it calls for. FYI,,enjoy!


  • 1/4 cup raw sugar (regular can be substituted)
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
  • 1/2 stick butter, melted
  • 2 (15 1/4-ounce) cans pear halves, keeping stem end attached, cut into 1/4-inch thick slices
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

In a small bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon together. Lay puff pastry sheet on a work surface brush with melted butter and sprinkle with half the cinnamon sugar. Cut into 6 even pieces. Fan the pear slices over the puff pastry, using 1/2 a pear for each puff pastry square. Sprinkle tops of pear tarts with remaining cinnamon sugar mixture. Bake until pastry is golden and cooked through, about 20 to 25 minutes.

Remove from tart from oven, sprinkle with cheese and bake until cheese melts, 5 minutes more.

Looks like it's so easy to make. I think I'll try it with apples.
Thanks for sharing.
