    The Pastry
  1. Place all the pastry ingredients into the Thermomix bowl. Mix for 1 minute on closed lid position on interval.

    Cover or wrap the pastry dough in glad wrap and place in the fridge for at least an hour.

    Preheat oven to 180°C. Lightly grease a muffin tray.

    On a floured surface, divide the dough into 12 even portions.  Roll out each one until it is big enough to fit into a muffin cup. Gently press the dough into the muffin cups and using your fingers pinch the tops to create a decorative edge.

    With any left over pastry, roll out and cut out shapes to go on the top of each tart.

  2. Place cashews into Thermomix bowl and chop for 2 seconds on speed 6. Set aside.

    Add the nuttelex to the bowl and melt at 60 deg for 2 minutes on speed 1. Add the brown sugar, eggs, cashews, pears and vanilla. Mix on reverse speed 1 for 30 seconds. Pour into the pastry cases and divide the mixture evenly between them. Top with a pastry shape..

    Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until the fillings are set. Allow to cool in the tray for 5 minutes before removing to a rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container at room temperature or in the fridge.

Tip

These little pies are divine! Suitable for the RPAH and Failsafe diet making them a great alternative for fruit mince pies at Christmas time. Leaving them plain on top or a different shape can make them perfect for any occasion. Lovely served at room temperature or heated up with ice cream or custard.

  • Thanks Panoukla.  The cream

    Thanks Panoukla.  The cream cheese works beautifully in the pastry. I am sure the lower fat block version would work fine, I have not tried it with the tubs that are softer, it may not give it the right consistency unless you add more flour to compensate. I just use the normal block one as I believe all the others ones contain a perservative.

    I will definitely give these a go at Christmas. Interesting addition of the cream cheese to the pastry. Is It ok to use the lower fat spreadable type?. Thanks for posting.
