Mini Pear Tarts
Sometimes the best recipes are also the easiest. This one is made with just a few ingredients..I had some fresh pears from a recent trip to the market and a can of Pillsbury crescent rolls. I made some mini pear tarts. My sweet husband ate his with whipped topping before I had a chance to take a photo, so just a simple photo today.Yum.
What You Need
1 Can crescent rolls (from your markets dairy section)
2 Pears, peeled and thinly sliced
4 tsp Sugar ( I use Splenda)
2 tsp Ground cinnamon
Nonstick cooking spray
Parchment paper ( or aluminum foil)
Before You Start: Preheat oven to 400°, line baking sheet with parchment paper ( I ran out so I used aluminum foil) and lightly spray with nonstick cooking spray.
Let Make It! Separate out the crescent triangles and lay them side by side (in twos) on your prepared baking sheet (opposite directions) to form four rectangles. Gently pinch together to form a seam.
In a small bowl whisk the egg well and brush across the tops of each rectangle. Separate your pear slices to fit an equal amount on each pastry rectangle. Lay the slices across the pastry dough overlapping slightly. Sprinkle1 tsp. of sugar and 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon over each prepared tart. Then dot with a few bits of butter.
Bake on top rack for 10-15 minutes (until pastry is golden).
