Roasted Pear Spooky Mummies

 8 pears
 1 sheet puff pastry
 1 egg, beaten
 candy eyes, to decorate

Preheat oven to 200°C. Use a melon ball to remove the pear cores from the base, then use a small knife to slice off the cheeks of the pears. Reserve the pear trimmings for another use.


Slice the pastry into fine strips, then wrap around the pears in overlapping layers to make bandages. Brush with the egg, arrange on lined oven trays, then bake for 18 minutes, until golden and crisp. Decorate with candy eyes.
