Oven Βaked Pears in Individual Pies

Oven Βaked Pears in Individual Pies


For the dough

  • Put the flour, sugar and butter in a mixer. Beat until the butter completely dissolves (about 2-3 minutes). Reduce the speed and toss in one egg. The flour should turn yellowish in colour and resemble bread crumbs.
  • Add color water slowly until the dough tightens and is soft enough to knead.
  • Separate the dough into 6 balls.
  • Wrap each ball in cling film and leave in the fridge for at least an hour.

For the pears

  • Soak the plums and tea in a bowl. Finely chop and set aside.
  • Wash the pears well and remove the pits and the centre of the fruit with a pit remover.
  • Put the plum mixture into each pear.
  • Pre-heat the oven to 160*C (320*F).
  • Unfold each ball of dough with a rolling pin into circles with a 15 cm diameter. Use flour so that the dough doesn’t stick to the work surface. Make a hole in the middle of each piece of dough using a pen cap.
  • Using a sharp knife, make 4 cm long incisions in the dough, starting 1 cm away from the centre and 1 cm apart.
  • Make small 1 cm incisions all around the circumference. Brush water onto each pear.
  • Cover each pear with dough, making sure it folds together well at the base.
  • Brush each dough with the egg yolk mixed with water.
  • Place the pears in a baking tray lined with grease-proof paper.
  • Bake for 50-60 minutes checking that the pears are ready by piercing them with a knife. If they’re soft, it means they’re ready.
  • Remove from the oven and serve. If desired, you can serve with caramel sauce or a little marmalade over each pear.
