This recipe combines several of my favorite dessert elements. When made well, pastry filling is absolutely amazing and a great alternative for those of you who are dairy-free. Plus the pear galettes are stunningly delicious, incase the enjoyment of the process isn’t enough for you. Enjoy #chocolatefriendsofTenaciousM!

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 30 minutes
Total time: 45 minutes
Serves: 6

Ingredients

500g pack Puff Pastry
100g ground almonds
3 tbsp Apple and Pear Juice
3 pears, washed, halved and quartered, cored and thinly sliced
2 tbsp agave
3 tbsp apricot jam
300g vegan chocolate sauce, to serve

Directions

Preheat oven to 375°F. Roll out the pastry onto a lightly floured work surface and cut out 6 circles, 12cm in diameter and about 4mm thick. Transfer to a non-stick baking tray.

Mix together the ground almonds with the apple and pear juice, then spread over the pastry circles to within 1cm of the edges. Arrange the slices of pear over the almond mixture. Gently heat the agave and brush over the pears, then bake for 20-25 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown.

Meanwhile, heat the apricot jam until bubbling. Allow to cool slightly then sieve, to remove the apricot pieces, and brush over the pear to glaze. Heat the chocolate sauce according to pack instructions and drizzle over the galettes; when ready, serve.
