Instructions

  1. 1.*Note: I used a ridged 6 tartlet baking tray for this yummy dessert.*
  2. 2.For the dough: place the dry ingredients into a bowl with the butter and mix it with your hands until you get a grainy texture.
  3. 3.Now add the water and mix though untill you get a uniform dough. Transfer the dough into a plastic bag and reserve in the fridge for about 20 minutes.
  4. 4.When 20 minutes is up, remove from the fridge and divide into 2 pieces. Stretch the dough onto a floured surface and use a wooden roller to roll it to a thickness of 2mm.
  5. 5.Use a ring cutter to create 6 dough circles. Then grab your tartlet tray, brush the tray with a little oil to avoid the dough sticking as it cooks. Then drape the dough into each of the tartlet moulds.
  6. 6.Prick the dough with a fork and bake in the oven at 200°C for 20 minutes.
  7. 7.Peel and cut the pears into cubes. Place them into a pan with the cinnamon and agave and let it cook for 20 minutes on a low heat.
  8. 8.Once baked, fill the tartlets with the warm pears and use the edible flowers and seeds for decoration. A spoon of almond yogurt is also particularly tasty with this desert!
