how to make

Gluten-Free Pear Turnovers with Dates

by

STEP 1

In a food processor, blitz the dates with water until you have a smooth and thick paste.

STEP 2

In a mixing bowl add the blended dates, finely diced pears, cinnamon, ginger, allspice, and lemon zest, and mix until the ingredients are well incorporated.

STEP 3

Roll out the pastry and cut out as many squares as the number of servings with a wheel cutter. Next, add 2 tablespoon of filling to the centre of each square and brush the edges with water. Then fold the dough to form a triangle and seal the edges with a fork. Make 3 slits in the centre of the pear turnovers to keep them from swelling.

STEP 4

Brush the pastries with a mix of almond milk and maple syrup. Refrigerate the prepared pear turnovers for 10 minutes as this will make the dough nicely flaky. Bake them for 25 minutes at 200°C (400°F). Once browned all over, transfer them onto a wire rack to cool down. Enjoy!
