Gluten-Free Pear Turnovers with Dates
In a food processor, blitz the dates with water until you have a smooth and thick paste. 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. 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. Get It! 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!
