This impressive pear and Nutella tear-and-share pie is really easy to make, and only requires a few ingredients. A delicious, and quick, autumn treat for when you want to get something on the table at coffee time.
The main thing:
This pear and Nutella tear-and-share pie is so quick to make, which comes in handy when you have last-minute people over for coffee. This simple treat is on the table within half an hour, which is ideal.
Nutella should generally not be stored in the fridge, but if you do, make sure it comes up to room temperature in plenty of time so you can spread it easily.
You can, of course, use other types of fruit. However, pear, chocolate and nuts are a match made in heaven. You could ring the changes with, apple, banana or even peach.

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
Peel the pears, remove the cores, and cut the pears into small chunks. Spread about 6 tablespoons of Nutella over a sheet of puff pastry, leaving the edges clear.
Scatter the pear chunks over the Nutella, then place the second sheet of puff pastry on top and press the edges together well.
Carefully place a bowl or glass in the centre of the pie, and use a sharp knife to cut all around, as shown in the photo.
Beat an egg and brush it over the surface of the puff pastry. Twist each sliced section of puff pastry twice, then spread the exposed areas of puff pastry with egg.
Sprinkle over a handful of slivered almonds and bake the puff pastry pie for around 15 to 20 minutes, until beautifully golden brown. The exact baking time depends on your oven and the thickness of the pear chunks.
Let the pie cool a little, but this puff pastry tear-and-share is best devoured when still a little warm. Enjoy!
Can I use other types of chocolate spread?
Nutella is a familiar brand name to many people, but you can use other types of chocolate spread. You can also use homemade “Nutella”.
Can I substitute pears with other fruit?
You can replace the pears with other fruit, such as apple, peach, apricot or even pieces of banana, if you wish.
