Ikea's slogan 'attention makes everything more beautiful' is one I live by. When you do something, make sure it is worth the effort. Add some beauty to every day activities. Of course these puff pastry pear bakings would taste just as good when we had left the dough squares uncut. But simply cutting around the fruit and cut out some leaves adds a wow-effect to the dessert. So when I was looking for a way to use some over-ripe pears and saw these pictures, I used the half hour, before the kids came out of school, to make these.
