Easy Pear Danish Bars

Easy Pear Danish Bars ~ Quick, easy Pear Danish Bars which will steal the show at any party or family gathering ! Flaky pastry with a divine, yet simple, filling www.withablast.net

I love Danishes, any kind and any flavor, but to make them, seem like hard work. These easy Pear Danish Bars are exactly my kind of recipe, quick, easy, no-fuss and as always - delicious ! Actually, quite divine, if I say so myself ;-)

Besides the Pears, you might already have all the ingredients on hand. Nothing strange and no expensive ingredients in this lovely recipe.

The filling consists of an almost marshmallowy, Almond layer and another layer of lightly Honey drizzled Pears, which makes this recipe outstanding.

I have also substituted the Pears with Apples before and it tastes just as great. If Apples are more your kind of thing, go for it ! I had my fair share of apple desserts these last couple of weeks, so I was all for a change and made these easy Pear Danish Bars this time round.

The recipe yields about 20 bars of which one bar is more than enough for an adult serving, therefore, next time you are asked to take-a-plate-with to a party or family gathering, these are perfect and they look elegant as well.

So, whether you are treating your family or guests, this is a sure way of getting their attention when it's time for dessert ! And no one needs to know how quick and easy the Pear Danish Bars really are to make ;-)

Easy Pear Danish Bars

20 Servings

INGREDIENTS:

2 Large Egg Whites
1/4 cup Caster Sugar, divided
1/2 cup Ground Almonds
2 Rolls Frozen Puff-Pastry, defrosted
1 can (825g / 29 ounces) Pear Halves, drained and cut into thin slices
2 TB Honey
1 Egg
2 TB Milk
2 TB Lemon Juice
1/3 cup Icing Sugar

Almond Slivers, toasted, to decorate

DIRECTIONS:

1.) Pre-heat the oven to 220 deg C (440 deg F) - line a baking sheet with baking paper.
2.) Beat the Egg Whites until stiff peaks form - add 1/4 of the Caster Sugar and beat again until the mixture has a glossy look - fold in remaining Caster Sugar and the Ground Almonds.
3.) Place one unrolled roll of Puff-Pastry on the prepared baking sheet - spread the Egg White mixture over - arrange the Pear slices on top of the Egg White mixture and drizzle with the Honey.
4.) Arrange the second roll of Puff-Pastry over the Pears.
5.) Whisk together the Egg and Milk - brush the top layer of Puff-Pastry with the mixture - bake 25 - 30 minutes or until golden and puffed.
6.) Leave to cool completely - slice into bars.
7.) Beat the Lemon Juice and Icing Sugar together - drizzle over the bars and sprinkle with Almond Slivers - chill a few minutes until the glaze has set.

Serve and keep leftovers in a sealed container.

    1. Erlene, the baking time is quite short, therefore I am not sure the pears would soften as much, but if you use really thin slices, it might work.

    1. Yes, Kathy, only a 1/4 cup Caster Sugar is needed for the 2 Egg whites. The Pears are sweetened with the drizzled Honey. Hope this helps ! {replying here as your e-mail is not attached to your comment :-) }
