Preparation

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 210 ° C (gas mark 6-7).
In a saucepan, make a caramel: Heat 130 g of sugar and water. When the caramel is golden, add the butter cut into pieces and whisk. Remove from the heat, stir in the mascarpone in 3 goes. Leave to cool.

Step 2

In a bowl, mix the softened butter, the remaining sugar and ground hazelnuts. When the mixture is smooth, add the caramel.

Step 3

Peel the pears and cut into quarters and set aside. Spread the pastry out in a flan tin and pour over the caramel mascarpone, spread well. Place the pears on top.

Step 4

Cover with the second puff pastry, sticking the edges together by turning them inwards. Make small slits all around the edge of the two pastries to make sure they really stick well then mark decorations on top with a knife or fork. Beat the egg and milk together and brush the pie before baking for 30 minutes.
