Saturated Fat: 5.5g
- 400g ready-made puff pastry, defrosted
- 3 balls stem ginger and 2 tbsp syrup from the jar, plus extra to glaze
- 50g caramel treat
- ½tsp ground cinnamon
- 2 tsp cornflour
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 5–6 ripe pears, peeled, cored and sliced (not too thickly)
- 1 beaten egg, to glaze
- Heat the oven to 200°C. Unroll the puff pastry on a sheet of baking paper, roll it out to a thickness of about 2.5mm. Pressing gently, run a knife around the edge of the pastry rectangle to create a 1 ½- cm border. Transfer the baking paper to a baking tray.
- Finely chop the stem ginger and mix with the syrup, caramel treat, cinnamon, cornflour, lemon juice and the pear slices.
- Arrange the pear slices on the pastry, inside the border, and pour over any extra caramel treat. Cook for 25–30 minutes on a baking tray, brushing the pastry with the egg after 15 minutes. Serve with ice cream.
