45 ml (3 T) water

30 ml (2 T) butter

3 pears, peeled and sliced

flour, for rolling

400 g frozen puff pastry, defrosted

15 ml (1 T) cinnamon (optional)

Preheat oven to 180C°. In a non-stick ovenproof pan, combine sugar and water.

Cook on medium heat without stirring until it starts to caramelise. Add butter and remove from the heat.

Arrange the pears and return pan to the heat to simmer on low heat for 5 minutes.
