The perfect use for your perfect Puff Pastry. Or you could use lots more butter and layers of filo, just so you know. This is a fantastic family dessert with a bit of finesse, so you can really feel pretty happy when you serve it up to the hungry horrors. Good on you, Mum! (Or Dad!)

Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.


Divide the pastry in 2 and roll each out into a 25cm × 15cm rectangle. Sprinkle over 1 tsp sugar and a few chopped nuts.


Divide the pear mix along the shorter edge of both pastry sheets and gently roll into 2 logs, tucking in the ends as you go. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle over 1 tbsp sugar and a few chopped hazelnuts. Can be assembled up to a day ahead and kept chilled.


Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the pastry is golden brown and crisp. Allow to cool slightly, then cut each strudel into 6 diagonal slices.
