Mini pear, stilton and honey tarts

These are really easy to make and don’t require many ingredients. The pears will caramelise in the honey while the stilton will provide a lovely tangy aftertaste.

I used two different sized round pastry cutters, one smaller than the other. If you don’t have pastry cutters, you could simply improvise with different sized glasses.

Ingredients (makes about 12)

1 pear (it doesn’t matter if it is still quite firm)
200g stilton
Runny honey
1 tube of ready-made puff pastry
Pepper

Method

Pop the oven on to 180.

Unroll the puff pastry. With the larger pastry cutter, cut out 12 circles and put them onto a baking tray. With the smaller pastry cutter, score a smaller circle on the inside of the larger circles so there is now a rim.

Finely slice the pear into smallish chunks and put the slices into the inner circle of each tart. Add a small dollop of honey on top and then a good chunk of stilton. Finally, grind some black pepper over the top before baking in the oven for about 10 minutes.
