Ingredients

  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 4 firm ripe pears, peeled leaving stems intact
  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 1/3 cup icing sugar
  • 150g butter, chilled, chopped
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp Coles Brand Sultanas, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 tbsp slivered almonds, toasted, finely chopped
  • 1/4 tsp Coles Brand Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • Double cream, to serve

Method

  • Step 1
    Stir the caster sugar and 6 cups water in a medium-large saucepan over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Add pears, cover and bring to a simmer. Cook for 10 mins or until just tender. Lift out, drain and cool. Place, uncovered, in the fridge to chill.
  • Step 2
    Sift flour and icing sugar into a bowl. Use your fingertips to rub in butter until mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Add lemon juice and 2 tsp chilled water. Use a flat-bladed knife to cut until mixture forms small clumps, adding another 2 tsp chilled water if needed.
  • Step 3
    Bring dough together. Divide into 4 portions. Flatten into 2cm-thick discs. Wrap and chill for 10 mins. Preheat oven to 180?C or 160?C fan.
  • Step 4
    Combine the sultanas, almonds and cinnamon in a small bowl. Use a melon baller to cut the core from the base of each pear.
  • Step 5
    Roll out 1 pastry portion on a sheet of baking paper to a 23cm disc. Fill 1 pear with one-quarter of sultana mixture and stand in centre. Gather pastry up and around pear, pressing gently. Trim overlapping pastry, reserving excess. Repeat with remaining pears, filling and pastry.
  • Step 6
    Cut leaves from excess pastry. Brush pastry with egg and attach leaves. Bake on a lined tray for 30 mins or until golden. If the tops of the pears are browning too quickly, wrap gently with foil. Cool slightly and serve with cream.
