Ingredients
  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 can (26 ounces) pear halves, drained and thinly sliced lengthwise
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon pear liqueur, optional
  • 2 tablespoons butter, cubed
  • 1/4 cup peach preserves
  • 2 teaspoons peach nectar
  • Equipment:
  • Baking sheet
  • Rolling pin
  • Pastry brush
  • Microwave-safe bowl
Directions
  • Thaw puff pastry at room temperature for 20 to 30 minutes. Unfold. If pastry does not unfold easily, thaw for an additional 5 to 10 minutes and retry.

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out pastry to a 10 by 12-inch rectangle. Transfer to an ungreased baking sheet. With a dry pastry brush, brush away any excess flour.

  • In a small bowl, lightly beat together egg and 1 tablespoon water to create an egg wash.

  • With the pastry brush, brush entirety of dough sheet surface with egg wash. Along all 4 sides, fold over a 1/2-inch of the edge to create a ridged border around pastry. Brush top of this rim with egg wash as well. Prick pastry (inside the rim) all over with a fork (this ensures that the dough inside the border does not puff up like the outer rim will).

  • Arrange thinly sliced pears on pastry, covering all of surface area, but in a single layer. Sprinkle pears with sugar, pear liqueur, and dot with cubes of butter.

  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until puffed and golden brown.

  • While tart is baking, combine peach preserves and peach nectar in a microwave-safe bowl. Stir to combine. Heat on high for 15 seconds at a time until preserves have melted, stirring each time. Once mixture has completely melted, push through a fine mesh strainer to remove any lumps or pieces of fruit. Set aside.

  • Once tart has finished baking, remove from oven. Brush peach glaze over entire tart, both fruit and pastry. Cool to room temperature and serve.
