Pear Tart with Chocolate Sauce

After almost 2 months I made a dessert.
And that too something from myown blog with a bit of change to the original recipe. There is also a step by step pictorial.

Not that I had to make any thing new for posting here as I have so many pending pictures and recipes for posting.
As you all must have noticed I am still not visitng the blogs I used to visit regularly before my life was turn upside down.
I once in a while and I mean once in while I go to a blog.
I think I must have gone just to few blogs in total, not that I don't want to visit , just that I don't have the patience  to  visit and write a comment, I am sure in time I will get back to my regular bloghopping.

3 firm pears, peeled
400 ml water
Few ornage peels
1 vanilla stick split
1 bay leaf
50 gm sugar
Few table spoon of Poire William ( optional)
6 square sheets of puff pastry
25 gm soft butter
50 gm walnuts chopped
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 egg lightly whisked
A bit of sugar to sprinkle

Half the pears and remove the middle and scopp a bit out from the middle.
Bring the water to boil in a pan abd add the orange peel, vanilla essence, sugar and bat leaf and poire williame.
Bring it to boil and add the pears.
Boil them for 10 minutes in slow fire with a cover

Now take the pears out and keep the sugar syrup aside ( remove the ornage peel and the bay leaf) Let the pear cool down.

Preheat the oven to 200°cNow take the pastrt sheets and cut them into pear shapes ( shown in the pic).

Apply egg wash over the whole pastry
Mix the butter ,sugar and the walnuts in a bowl.
Take a tsp of the filling and fill the holes of each pear.

Lay the pears the filled side down on the puff pastry.
Sprnikle with sugar.
Bake the tarts 15 to 20 minutes or untill it is golden brown

In the original recipe you make a chocolate sauce from the syup.
But this time I just MW 100 gm of chocolate with a bit of milk and poured over the tarts.
