  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F. Cut pastry into 4 squares. Place pastry squares on ungreased cookie sheet.
  • 2
    Peel pear and cut into quarters; remove seeds. Slice each pear quarter into very thin slices. Arrange pear slices over pastry squares, leaving 1/2-inch border.
  • 3
    Bake about 20 minutes or until pastry is puffed and browned. Spread 1 tablespoon preserves over top of each warm tartlet to cover pears. Cool on cookie sheet 10 minutes before serving.

Expert Tips

  • Thaw the frozen puff pastry on the counter about 15 minutes. The pastry should be chilled but still pliable when you're ready to work with it. If the pastry gets too warm, the butter layers will flatten and the pastry won't puff as high when it bakes.
  • This is the perfect dessert to make when you're short on time. Keep puff pastry in the freezer for those occasions when you need a quick dessert.
