1 Pound of Bosc Pears

1 Sheet of Frozen Puff Pastry

2 Tablespoon Butter

¼ Cup of Chopped Hazelnuts

¼ Cup of Brown Sugar, Plus ½ Tablespoon

¼ Teaspoon Salt

¼ Teaspoon Cinnamon

¼ Teaspoon Nutmeg


1.    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

2.    Defrost the puff pastry by leaving it out at room temp for around 15 min. Slice the pears into ¼ inch thick slices and chop the hazelnuts.

3.    Make the brown butter by adding butter to a pan on medium heat. Keep your eye on it, and give it a good swirl a few times. Once the butter starts to brown and smell nutty, take it off the heat.

4.    Transfer the browned butter to a mixing bowl, and add the sliced pears, ¼ cup of brown sugar and salt. Mix well.

5.    Place parchment paper on a sheet tray and grease with cooking spray or a little butter. Roll out the puff pastry over the sheet tray. Add the pears to the puff pastry, and reserve the leftover brown butter sauce. Sprinkle the chopped hazelnuts and pop it in the oven for 20 min. Once cool enough to touch, drizzle the leftover brown butter sauce.
