Ingredients for 6 people

3 pears

1 1/4 cups of sugar

1 vanilla bean

12 squares dark chocolate

2 puff pastries

1 egg

whipped cream


Baking tray

Parchment paper

Step 1/4

Peel the pears, cut them in half lengthwise and remove the seeds. Bring 2 cups of water to the boil with the sugar and the open vanilla pod, submerge the pears and leave to infuse for 45 minutes on a low heat, turning them over from time to time.

Step 2/4

In the hollow of each pear half, place 2 squares of chocolate. Arrange the pears in a star shape, on their flat side, on 1 of the puff pastries laid on the baking tray lined with parchment paper.

Step 3/4

Mark 3/4" long slits evenly over the entire 2nd dough. Brush the 1st dough with beaten egg and place the 2nd dough on top. Remove a disc of dough in the center and triangles between each pear to form a large flower.

Step 4/4

Draw and cut out sheets from the pastry scraps and decorate the pie. Seal the edges well with a fork. Brush the tart with the beaten egg and bake at 400 °F for 15 minutes and then lower to 350 °F for another 15 minutes. Serve with whipped cream.
