Ingredients

  • 1

    lb. firm, ripe pears, peeled, cored and cut into cubes

  • 1/3

    cup sugar

  • 3

    Tablespoons water

  • 12

    ounces frozen puff pastry, thawed

  • 1

    large egg, lightly beaten

  • 6

    cups vegetable oil, to deep fry

  • 1/2

    cup apple preserves (jam)

  • 1

    Tablespoon white rum

  • 2

    Tablespoons confectioners' sugar, to dust

Directions

1. Place the pears, sugar, and water in a medium saucepan over low heat. Simmer, stirring often, until the fruit is softened, 10 to 15 minutes. 2. Roll out the pastry on a floured surface to 1/4-inch thick. Use a 3-inch cookie cutter to cut out disks. Brush the edges of half the pastry disks with the beaten egg. 3. Place a little of the pear mixture in the center of each of the disks. Cover with the plain disk, pressing down on the edges to seal. 4. Heat the oil in a deep-fryer or deep saucepan to 365 degrees (190 degrees c). 5. Fry the fritters in batches until golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes each batch. 5. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. 6. Heat the apple preserves in a small saucepan. Remove from the heat and stir in the rum. 7. Dust the fritters with confectioners' sugar and serve hot with the apple sauce.
