Mini Pear Tarts

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

1 Egg

4 tsp Sugar ( I use Splenda)

2 tsp Ground cinnamon

Unsalted butter

Nonstick cooking spray

Parchment paper ( or aluminum foil)

Baking sheet



Basting brush

Small bowl

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).

Serves 4

Do you have a quick dessert recipe using crescent rolls?

  3. Katherine,

    You are the BEST! Thanks so much for inspiring me today! I need to make these for breakfast!



  4. I do like pears and cinnamon, this looks delish. I have a few recipes using the crescent rolls and biscuits, I posted a couple, but like you, have to work fast to get a photo ♥

    Oh, I know I will be making these soon. The crescent rolls are basically a stable in my frig. Thanks 4 the recipe.
    I like making apple dumplings using the crescents.

  6. Katie,

    Your tarts look wonderful and so easy to make. I love pears and crescent rolls. I wonder if you can make these using puff pastries? In any event these make my mouth water!

  7. This is so great, I have a pear tree heavy with fruit and I keep looking for quick recipes – pinning it!

  8. Yum! And so easy! I could definitely see myself making this on a night when I really want dessert but can’t spend too long making it. Thanks for sharing!

  9. Wow, that is easy and sounds delicious :)

  10. Oh my goodness….I can see why he gobbled his up so fast! They look delicious!

  11. That just looks like a great recipe. I love simple ones and this one is a great one!

    HOW Scrumptious are these!!!! What a brilliant recipe my friend…I am going to try it this week with the Asian Pears I have : ) YAY!!!!! So sorry once again for being MIA — just trying to keep up with the endless tasks! Hope you and yours are fabulous and hope my friend IZZY is PAWFECT!!!! sending tons of hugs your way! love…me!

  18. I might even be able to this one! Looks yummy!

  19. We don’t have refrigerated dough in cans here. I wonder how this would be on puff pastry? I’m going to give it a go.

  20. Perfectly delightful! I have used apples for something similar–and yes, I entered the very generous book giveaway–thank you!

  21. This looks so good and doable for someone who doesn’t love cooking like me!

  22. Here’s a hug. I’m far to lazy to create anything more complicated than a pop-open can of crescent biscuits, so I know you made this recipe with my lazy bones in mind. Thank you. Now, if I could get your husband to quit eating them, so you’d bring the leftovers to my house, I’d be even happier.
    I have a kid coming home from college this weekend. This will be perfect. thanks. And Thanks for stopping by my place.

  23. Hi there, nice to “meet” you :) Thanks for visiting, leaving a sweet comment AND becoming a follower – I am now your newest linky follower. These look absolutely delicious! I will have to try them sometime. Have a wonderful day!


  24. I do normally like to make things from scratch but I have to say I have a weakness for crescents! This looks so good – I’ll have to make it :)

  25. Yum! I’m not surprised it disappeared so quickly!!

    Thanks for linking to a Round Tuit!
    Hope you have a fabulous week!
