Pear Tarte Tatin With Vanilla Ice Cream

Pear Tarte Tatin With Vanilla Ice Cream

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. You will need a 8 inch diameter ovenproof shallow tin or tatin tin.

Peel the pears and cut them in half lengthways. Use a corer to scoop out the core.

Spread the butter over the base of the tin and sprinkle the sugar to cover the butter. Add the scraped vanilla seeds and pod along with the Chinese five-spice, if using.

Place the pears, point towards the center and cut side down, onto the sugar.

Place the disc of pastry over the top of the pears and tuck any excess pastry underneath the round edges of the pear around the tin. We are looking for an unfussy and rustic-style appearance to this dessert, so don’t be afraid to get in there and use your hands.

Using a sharp knife, cut a small slice in the centre of the puff pastry to allow steam to escape while cooking.

Place the pan on a stove, barbecue top, or flame and heat over medium–high heat.

As the pan starts to heat, shake it to avoid the contents from sticking and catching.

Syrup will start to develop in the pan with the butter and sugar mixing and melting together. Use a spoon to scoop some of this syrup onto the back of the exposed puff pastry.

Get the spoon into the center cavity and ensure an all-over liberal soaking of the pastry with the syrup. Continue to shake the pan and keep the contents moving.

Cook until the syrup turns a golden-brown color, then remove from the heat.

Place the entire tin in the oven and cook for around 20–25 minutes or until the tatin looks cooked and the pastry is crisp.

Remove from the oven and allow the tatin to cool for 5 minutes before attempting the flip.

Use oven gloves or a tea towel (dish towel) to hold a serving plate inverted over the tin, then flip in one rapid motion until the plate is on the bottom and the tin is on the top. Leave to cool for 5 minutes before serving.

To serve:

Cut into portions and serve the tatin immediately with some ice cream, cream, custard, or all three.

Notes: The basting of the raw pastry with the syrup might seem strange, but it is the most important part of this recipe, as it ensures the pastry crisps up in the hot oven.

The pears can be substituted for another fruit if you wish. Try a tart including classic apple or exotic mango or pineapple. Add some spices of your choice when adding the vanilla seeds if you wish.
