Extra pastry dough is a great thing to have around the house.  Especially when Victor is in the kitchen!

We had a mere two pears in the house but he made do with a filling that really worked well!  We had chocolate bars and a jar of the chocolate hazelnut spread I made a while back.  Perfect filling for a pear topping!

Nutella Pear Tart

  • 1 pastry crust
  • 2 pears, sliced wafer-thin
  • 8 oz dark chocolate, melted
  • 1/2 cup nutella
  • 1/4 cup coffee

Roll out dough and place in tart pan.  Bake at 350° about 30 minutes or until golden brown.

Meanwhile, melt chocolate.  Stir in nutella and then add about 1/4 cup coffee.  Mix well.  Chocolate may appear to seize.

Spread evenly in warm tart shell.  Cover with thin-sliced pears.  Brush with fruit jam glaze.
