Sometimes you just feel like fiddling around in the kitchen, or at least I like that. Just don't think about anything for a while and enjoy working with your hands and some food, with the result being something very tasty. This is also the case with this poached pear in puff pastry. It takes a few steps, but the result is really fun and delicious. You certainly don't need to have studied for it and if you work neatly, you will immediately see this reflected in the end result.

You can of course fill the filling in the cavity of the pears to your own liking. I used pecan nuts and chocolate, but if you want a savory version, consider cheese and nuts! You can also make a sauce that you pour over the pears, or if you make the sweet version, add a nice scoop of ice cream, then you really have a showstopper for dessert at a dinner. Because we poach the pears in some water with sugar and star anise, they also get some of that flavor. You can also add cinnamon sticks or other spices, or cook the pears in wine. Enough ideas to make your own delicious version.

Here you will find the complete recipe with all the ingredients you need. I hope you have fun preparing the dish below.

You need:

kitchen brush


  • 4 Conference pears - peeled
  • 1 role puff pastry - from the fresh produce
  • 70 gram pecans - chopped
  • 2 el chocolate chips
  • 1 ei - knocked loose
  • 2 el sugar
  • 1 tl cinnamon
  • powdered sugar
  • 4 star anise
  • 50 gram sugar

Nice and easy: click on the logo of your favorite supermarket to add the ingredients.

And this is how you make it:

  • Preheat your oven to 200 degrees.
  • Peel the pears and leave the stem attached. Cut off the bottom so that you get a flat bottom and hollow out the convex side of the pear with a knife and a spoon.
  • Take a pan and add enough water to cover the pears, add the 50 grams of sugar and star anise and poach the pears for 8 to 10 minutes until the pear is soft. (but not too soft!). Let drain and cool.
  • Roll out the puff pastry and cut 4 squares out of it, the rest of the dough into long strips. (Just leave on the sheet until you are ready to use it).
  • Fill the cavity of the pear with the chopped pecan nuts and chocolate chips. Place the pear on a square and fold it tightly around the bottom of the pear. Wrap the pear with the strips of puff pastry and press it well.
  • Repeat with all the pears and then brush them with egg, sprinkle with some sugar and cinnamon. Place the pears on a baking tray lined with baking paper in the oven and bake until the puff pastry is nice and golden brown. About 20-25 minutes.
  • Let cool slightly and sprinkle with some icing sugar.
  • Delicious bites!

This dish obviously takes a little time by poaching the pear and then wrapping it in puff pastry. I also have other, perhaps slightly faster, baked goods for you, check out the ones below:
