Yields 6, 1 per serving

  • 1 (13.2-ounce) package frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 3 tablespoons light brown sugar, packed
  • 3 medium Bartlett pears, peeled
  • 1 large egg, whisked
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 6 tablespoons sliced almonds

1. Preheat air fryer to 350°F. Cut a piece of parchment to fit air fryer basket.

2. Unroll puff pastry and cut into six equal pieces, then place on parchment.

3. Make an X on each pastry piece using a knife. Place ½ tablespoon brown sugar in the center of each X.

4. Cut top and bottom off each pear. Slice pears in half lengthwise, then use a spoon to remove cores. Cut each pear half into ¼"-thick slices, keeping slices for each pear half together. Place slices from each pear half on a pastry piece.

5. Lightly brush each tart with egg, then sprinkle with nutmeg.

6. Place parchment with tarts into air fryer basket, working in batches as needed. Bake 12 minutes or until puff pastry is golden brown and pears are tender.

7. Drizzle honey over tarts while cooling.

8. In a small skillet over medium heat, toast almonds 3 minutes or until warmed and just beginning to turn brown. Sprinkle over tarts to serve.
