This is a perfect treat for dessert on Christmas Day.

Makes six mini pies

Ingredients
1 sheet of puff pastry
Butter for greasing muffin pan
2 pears
1/2 a cup of brown sugar
1 tablespoon of water
Sprig of rosemary
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
Milk for glazing

Method
Preheat oven 180°C. Grease muffin pan with butter. Thaw puff pastry. You will need something to make a round shape, a cookie cutter or a glass. Cut out six circles of pastry and push them into your muffin pan. Place in the oven for 15 mins or until the pastry is puffed. Take out of the oven and let settle.
To make pie filling, put water, diced pear, brown sugar and rosemary into a small saucepan on a low – medium heat. Stir regularly. Cook until the pear is soft and sugar syrupy.
Spoon pie filling into the base of your pies. Create a lid for the pies with the left over puff pastry. I made a criss cross pattern. Glaze pastry with milk.
Put pies into the oven for 15 – 20 minutes or until pastry has puffed and golden brown.
Serve with extra rosemary and honey-sweetened Greek yogurt.
