Pear tart with blue cheese and hazelnuts

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Join pastry sheets to make a 20cm x 30cm rectangle. Lay on prepared tray. With a sharp knife, score a 1cm rim around edge of pastry, taking care not to cut all the way through. Prick inside rim with a fork. Arrange pear slices inside rim. Drizzle with maple syrup and scatter with blue cheese and hazelnuts.
