This super easy recipe is one of my favourite ones. It's simple but very impressive. It's a sugar free dessert recipe so diabetics can eat it with no problem and in addition it has a low caloric content.

Step 1: Ingredients

- 3 Pears

- 5 Brick pastry sheets

- 20g Butter

- 60g Sultanas

Step 2: Preparing the Filling

- Peel the pears, cut them into pieces and put them in a pan with no water in it. We'll cook the pears in its own juice.

- Add the raisins and a pinch of salt.

- Cook them at low temperature untilthe raisins were rehydrated and soft (15-20 minutes).

- Add the butter and mix well.

- Let the mixture cool.

Step 3: Making the Bags

- In order to make a thicker bottom so the bag wouldn't break, cut a pastry sheet into 6 portions and add a second layer of pastry on the center before you put the mixture on it (4-5 tablespoons).

- Close them as if they were bags and tie each of them with a piece of thead (20cm / 8" long).

- Place the bags on a baking tray covered with non-stick baking paper.

- Bake them for 8 minutes at 190ºC (370F)

Step 4: Presentation

- I decided to melt some dark chocolate (70%) and make a few forms, adding a raising on top.

- I also dusted icing sugar on the bag to add a "winter snow effect"

- You could also put a mint leaf and berries.
