I am sharing two wonderful Autumn Fruit Puff Pastry Desserts. One thing I get asked a lot, usually when I am experimenting with recipes and I post them on Facebook, is “Can I have that recipe? ” Well yes, of course, you can. I am happy to share my recipes especially when something works out so well and is so tasty.
I had these question numerous times recently when I produced two Autumn fruit Puff Pastry Desserts in the last couple of weeks – what is a girl to do when puff pastry was on special offer and Autumn fruits are plentiful?

Pear and Ginger Puff Pastry Dessert
This Pear and Ginger Slice was my first dessert I attempted – now I know you can make Puff pastry from scratch but even Mary Berry from Great British Bake off says if you can buy it do and Aldi have reduced it down to 89c, so fill up your freezers.
- 1/2 packet puff pastry
- 3 pears cored and sliced
- 1/3 of cup of honey
- 1/3 of a cup of butter
- 1/2 tsp Ginger powder
- 1/4 tsp Cinnamon
- egg – for wash
The How to Bit
- Roll out your pastry on a flat, lined baking tray ( if you are like me and need a new one !!) and preheat the oven to 180°C or 350°F
- Score a margin 1/2 inch inside the pastry rectangle and layer the sliced pears neatly inside this margin.
- Mix together the honey, butter, ginger, and cinnamon in a small microwave safe bowl and melt – I suggest the microwave for 30 sec
- Pour the Honey/Ginger mixture over the pear slices.
- Brush egg wash around the pastry 1/2 inch edge with a pastry brush.
- Place in the oven for 15 – 20 minutes or until golden brown.
Apple and Maple Puff pastry Dessert
- One box Puff Pastry
- 4 apples – Coxes Apples work well
- 1/3 cup Maple Syrup
- 1/2tsp Cinnamon
- 10g butter or 1/3 of a cup
- egg whisked for egg wash
- Preheat your oven to 180°C or 350°F
- Roll out your puff pastry onto a lined tray – trim 2 inches from the side to use for the lattice
- Core and slice your apples
- Add the Butter to 1/3 cup of Maple syrup and the cinnamon and melt together and mix
- Brush your pastry with the butter and maple syrup mixture
- Lay the apples neatly about and inch from the edge of the pastry
- Roll up the edges and using the 2-inch strip of pastry you cut earlier – cut into 1cm strips and create a lattice across your apples
- Pour the rest of your maple and butter mix across the top of the pastry and brush on your egg wash
- Place in the oven for 15- 20 minutes or until golden
