Maple Pear Tarts

So simple, but so good – this wintery Maple Pear Tart recipe is a great one if you need to whip up a dessert or afternoon tea quickly and uses ingredients you’re likely to have on hand!

To make this pear tart seasonal you could replace pear with apple and feijoa in alternating layers in Autumn, or make use of summer’s bounty with apricots, peaches or nectarines – it’s the kind of recipe you can adapt to whatever you have in the fruit bowl! I love serving this with some tart unsweetened Greek yoghurt to balance out the maple syrup, but you could use whipped cream, ice cream, coconut yoghurt or whatever you might have in the fridge!
