This pear mug pie is the coziest way to enjoy warm, caramelized pears. Topped with vanilla ice cream and the cutest, quick puff pastry stars, these are a great dessert for a dinner party or an easy one to make for yourself on a Saturday night!
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Use a small star-shaped cookie cut to make cuts in the puff pastry. You can use whatever kind of cookie cutter you’d like! Brush each piece with the beaten egg and sprinkle the turbinado sugar on top.
Bake the puff pastry for 15 to 20 minutes, or until they are golden and puffed.
While the puff pastry is baking, heat a skillet over medium heat and melt the butter. Once melted, add the pears and stir. Cook for 5 minutes, until they soften slightly. Add in the brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg and ginger. Stir and cook for 5 minutes more, until the pears are tender.
To serve the mug pies, spoon the pears into the bottom of your mug. Top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a few of the puff pastry stars.
