Love pear in puff pastry pocket ♥ ♥ ♥ this is a simple yet absolutely divine fruity dessert enjoyed on it’s own or with a scoop of complimenting creamy vanilla ice cream.
I went food shopping last Friday and as I reached the fruit section I got amazed of the variety of different types of pears they had! There were 3 different shades of green pears, brown, red and some that looked like a pear and an apple hybrid (later confirmed as Nashi Pear/Asian Pear).
Did you know that there are at least 10 different types of pears! I pretty much differentiate them by the colours and variations of the familiar heavy-bottomed shape, but after reading on the subject found they have beautiful names and vary in flavour notes as well as in textures. I love this informative Saveur gallery of pear varieties.
In this recipe I used floral Red Starkrimson Pear from the USA.
