Pear tarte Tatin

A tarte Tatin is always an elegant dessert and has the advantage
of being very simple to prepare!
  • 25g Butter
  • 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 Vanilla bean - I used vanilla essence 
  • 2 Pears - peeled and sliced
  • 1 Sheet of Puff Pastry 

  • Preheat the oven to 180C. 
  • Put the butter in a 20cm ovenproof fry pan over medium heat. Add the brown sugar. Split the vanilla bean and scrape the seeds into the pan, stirring to combine.
  • Peel the pears, halve, core and slice, then arrange in the pan.
  • Cook for 5 minutes until the pear is starting to soften and the butter and sugar are beginning to caramelise.
  • Cut the pastry to fit inside the pan, then lay over the pears and bake for 30 minutes or until the pastry is golden.
  • Let the tart sit for 2 minutes before running a knife around the edge, placing a serving plate over the pan and carefully inverting. Serve warm with vanilla bean ice cream or whipped cream.
