Servings: 6


  • 2 sheets frozen puff pastry thawed
  • 1/2 cup caramelised onions store-bought in a jar
  • 4 pears thinly sliced
  • 1 cup goats cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 50 g prosciutto thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup walnuts roughly chopped
  • 30 g parmesan cheese finely grated
  • lemon wedges to serve


  • Preheat oven to 190 degrees celsius (slightly lower if using fan-forced).
  • Trim the sides of the puff pastry sheets so that they resemble long rectangles.
  • Use a knife to carefully score a line approximately 2cm from each of the outside edges (but don't cut all the way through).
  • Prick the pastry sheets with a fork and place into a preheated oven for 15 minutes.
  • Thinly slice the pears.
  • Remove the puff pastry sheets from the oven and allow to cool slightly.
  • Spread the caramelised onion over the middle of each pastry sheet (up to the scored lines).
  • Place the pear slices onto the caramelised onion (allowing them to overlap slightly).
  • Cook in the oven for a further 5-10 minutes or until the pear is just starting to soften.
  • Remove from the oven and crumble over the goats cheese.
  • Season with salt and pepper (optional).
  • Sprinkle over small pieces of prosciutto (simply tear the slices by hand).
  • Finely grate the parmesan cheese over the top and sprinkle over the walnuts.
  • Serve with lemon wedges.
