Oozing with soft, golden salted caramel, this pear tart is the perfect combination of fruit, pastry and delicious caramel.
120g caster sugar
40g salted butter
¼ tsp Maldon sea salt
Pre rolled puff pastry
Pre heat the oven to 200C
Peel the pears and cut into quarters, cut the core out of each piece.
Take an oven-safe frying pan approximately 21 cm in diameter, put on the heat and add the sugar. Heat until the sugar starts to caramelise and turn a golden brown colour, stir with a wooden spoon until all the sugar has caramelised. Add the butter and whisk until it comes together to form a caramel.
Add the pears to the pan and mix well, cook for approximately 5-6 minutes until the pears soften, take off the heat and leave to cool.
Cut a disk from the pre rolled puff pastry, approximately 24 cm in diameter, lay over the cooled pears and tuck the edges into the bottom of the pan.
Cook for 20 – 25 minutes in the oven. Cool slightly. Remove from the pan by flipping over the tart onto a plate, serve with vanilla ice cream or double cream.
