Get out your cupcake tin for this one

Roll out your dough

Using a large cookie cutter or knife, cut out round dough pieces to place in cupcake tins

Fill the mini crusts with the boiled down pear pulp

top each tart with another round piece of dough and cut off any extra dough

cut a hole in the top of the tart

Place tarts in over for 30-35 minutes. Remove when tops are a golden brown.
