With just a few simple ingredients, you can make these easy pear turnovers, delicious puff pastries with a spiced pear and date filling.
For this recipe we have used gluten-free puff pastry which is nowadays very easy to find in most supermarkets, so that even those on special gluten-free diets can enjoy this amazing dessert.
Also, these homemade pear turnovers are vegan and sugar-free! We have replaced the 'eggwash' with a vegan version and refined sugar with a gooey date paste.
Dates make a great alternative to refined sugar as they are naturally sweet but with a low glycemic index (GI) and high in fibres. Also, they are rich in fructose which doesn’t rise blood sugar and thus it’s not fattening.
