About this recipe

With just a few simple ingredients, you can make these easy pear turnovers, delicious puff pastries with a spiced pear and date filling. They are vegan, gluten-free, and sugar-free, for a healthier alternative to the classic recipe. We have replaced refined sugar with blended dates as they are naturally sweet, high in fibres, and with a low GI.

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!
