Pears and Nutella – a classic combo! This recipe’s really easy and it helps me out any time I run out of biscuits for breakfast. The dumplings are not so sweet after all, I avoid using too much sugar whenever I also use Nutella. It’s up to you obviously, but the biscuit with such a mild taste will exalt the filling. And it’s so good for your guilt feelings that you may do without sugar in the dough for once…
So, get yourself
130 gr flour
50 gr water
40 gr sunflower oil
1 white egg
Put the flour in a bowl and add the water. Whisk it and then also add the oil. Keep on whisking. After but an egg into the bowl (well, if you really want… a spoonful of sugar as well..). as the dole becomes thicker start kneading it until it becomes solid enough to roll it into a small ball. Wrap it with film and put it into the fridge for half an hour. In the meantime, peel and cut the pear in very small pieces (switch on the radio if you like, it’s relaxing).
After thirty minutes take the dough out of the fridge, roll it out with the help of a rolling pin and cut several circles (you may use a glass). Put some Nutella in the centre (half a teaspoon), then a few bits of pear, and then fold it in the shape of a dumpling. Close firmly with the fingers and then with the prong of a fork.
Put the dumplings on a tray, and then into the oven for 20 minutes at 180 degrees.
You may sprinkle them with icing sugar, if you like it.
