  • 6 pre-made puffed pastry shells, such as Tenderflake brand
  • 3 small pears, cored and cut into quarters
  • 112 gr Chèvre (soft goat’s cheese), one small package
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 3 sprigs fresh thyme


  1. Bake pastry shells as per package directions. Remove from oven and set aside to slightly cool. Reserve lids for another use.

  2. Meanwhile, take a small dry skillet and lightly toast pine nuts on med-low heat for 5-7 minutes. Once they become fragrant they’re done. Remove nuts from pan and set aside.

  3. Heat a skillet to medium heat. Add butter, thyme, and pear pieces. Cook, while stirring occasionally, until golden brown. About 7-10 minutes. Season lightly with salt and pepper. Remove from heat and set aside.

  4. To assemble, fill each pastry shell with 1/6 of the goat’s cheese. Top with pear slices and pine nuts.
