175 g flour
85 g chilled butter
1 egg yolk
30 g caster sugar
4-5 pears
50 g almond flour
2 tbsp jam (whatever you like) or maple syrup

Cut the butter into small pieces and add them to the flour. Rub the butter into the flour with you fingers until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs. Add 30 g of the caster sugar. Beat the egg yolk and mix into the mixture. Add as much water as to be able to make a ball of dough. Put in fridge for 30 mins.
Turn on the oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Take out the cores of the pears and slice them (until 300 g). Cook over a low heat until pears are soft.
Roll out the dough to a greased baking form, prick it with a fork and bake for 10 mins.
Mix the cooked pears with the almond flour and add it on top of the pastry. Slice another 2-3 pears into thin slices and add them on top of the cooked pears. Mix jam with little water or use maple syrup to brush it over the sliced pears. Bake for 30 mins.
