Pear and Almond Galettes

I had puff pastry sheets in my freezer and I used one of them recently to make the easy Apple Turnover Recipe.  The puff pastry box comes with two sheets so we decided to make use of the second one this morning. We found this Pear and Almond Galettes recipe in Donna Hay’s Off The Shelf cookbook – they were a snap to make and my kid devoured them!

Prep Time: 10 mins  Cooking Time: 20 mins

2 pears sliced thin
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 tablespoon almond meal

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cut ready-rolled puff pastry into 6 rectangles. Fold in each of the sides and press with fork. Sprinkle almond meal over the the top of each triangle and top with slices of pear being careful to leave the border in tact. Brush the pear with melted butter and sprinkle with sugar. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
