I ordered a couple of bags of pears from Tesco this week. However they didn’t have the ones I ordered so they did a replacement. Somehow they managed to replace 2 bags of 5 pears with 4 bags of 7 pears. They didn’t charge extra, which is nice… but it does mean I have a stockpile of pears to get through!
So to use some up, and to try making rough puff pastry again after it didn’t work that well last time, I’m doing a rough puff pear tarte tatin.
The basic pastry is:
- 250g plain flour
- 250g butter
- 1 tsp salt
- 100ml water
The butter gets cut into small cubes and rubbed into the flour (& salt) a bit, leaving lots of chunks of butter. Then water is added to form the dough, and this goes in the fridge for 20 minutes.
Then roll out the pastry and cut out a circle to fit the pan, and tuck in at the edges.
Wow – I made tarte tatin! And it tasted great :)
