For a simple and delightful afternoon tea recipe, you should try our easy to prepare fruit tart desserts.

We created a Pear with Dark Chocolate & Sea Salt tart, plus a Peach with Homemade Jam & Walnut version.

We used our homemade strawberry jam for the Peach tart (Homemade Strawberry Jam Recipe) however you can use any jam of your choice, plus any fruit and toppings you desire, when it comes to making your own fruit tarts.

Pear Tart Ingredients

- 1 x puff pastry sheet
- 3 x pears
- 1/2 x cup brown sugar
- 1/2 x cup white sugar
- 1 x teaspoon cinnamon
- grated dark chocolate, for sprinkling
- sea salt, for sprinkling
- Greek yoghurt, for serving (optional)

Method

- Line a baking tray with baking paper and place sheet of puff pastry on top.
- Using a sharp knife, trace a square over the puff pastry leaving a 3cm border. This will puff up and become the edge of tart, however make sure you don’t cut all the way through.
- Using a fork, poke small holes into the centre of the square.
- Cut pears in half, take core out and then slice.
- In a small bowl combine brown sugar, white sugar and cinnamon.
- Sprinkle half the sugar mixture onto the traced square part of the puff pastry.
- Lay slices of pears closely together, with wide ends facing towards the outside.
- Sprinkle remaining sugar mixture over pears and place in 180 degrees (preheated oven).
- Bake for 35 minutes, or till golden brown.
- Allow to slightly cool and then sprinkle with grated dark chocolate and sea salt.
- Serve warm with a dollop of Greek yoghurt.
