How to make it

  • Place pears in a large pot with sugar and cover with water. Gently poach for 30 mins.
  • Remove, core and cut in half.
  • Cut 8 @11-12 cm discs from the pastry and place each disc in a greased 10cm start mould so it just hangs over the side.
  • To make filling, cream butter and sugar, beat in egg; stir in almond meal and flour until well combined.
  • Spoon into raw pastry shells -only half fill as it rises quite a bit.
  • Place a pear half on top and sprinkle with flaked almonds.
  • Bake at 160degC for 25 mins.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool. Sprinkle with icing sugar and serve.
