Delicious Pear Puffs Dessert Recipe

Something about springtime makes it feel like brunch season has arrived! The thought of sitting outside in the warm spring air, sipping prosecco and enjoying small bites seems to mesh perfectly with warming weather. A lazy afternoon brunch could call for bubbly outside…early afternoon, a sparkling wine is a light but chill way to complement delicious bites.

Preheat oven to 400F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside. For egg wash, in a small bowl, lightly whisk together egg and 1 teaspoon water. Set aside.

Unroll puff pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface. Using a rolling pin, roll puff pastry into a 14 x 10-inch rectangle. cut into sixteen 3 x 2-inch rectangles.
