Pear & Fig Phyllo Crisp is an easy, sweet dish to make this fall! The flakey dish has a sweet taste, with a great crunch due to the pecans in the layers.
Pear & Fig Phyllo Tart Inspo
I was stumped on what to make for a fun treat this past weekend, and I did not want to go to the grocery store. So, I looked in my fridge and freezer to create a recipe. I think that is always when the best recipes come to my mind – when I have to get creative.
I had some pears left over from a cocktail I made a few weeks ago, some figs that I had to munch on and phyllo dough. Oh, and of course I had pecans and maple syrup in stock because I feel that they are my fall staples.
This recipe immediately popped into my mind. I love the flakiness of the phyllo dough, mixed with the stickiness of the maple syrup, the sweetness of the pears and figs and the crunch from the pecans.
What is even better? This recipe takes 20 minutes to prep and 30 minutes to bake! It is extremely easy and you will impress anyone you serve this to.
Ingredients To This Pear & Fig Phyllo Tart
Phyllo dough. I used Athens brand! It is my preferred phyllo dough, but you can use any type.
Pears. You can use any type of pears for this recipe. Buy them fresh, as cooked won’t bake the same.
Figs. I used whole, fresh figs.
Pecans. Crushed pecans are essential for this recipe! They add a great crunch to it. If you can only find regular pecans, crush them in a paper bag with a cutting board (press down on the bag with cutting boards).
Cinnamon and Sugar. Essential for the layers.
Maple Syrup. For the drizzle on top! Not essential, but you will miss out on that syrup goodness if you leave it out.
Eating The Tart
I paired this tart with my apple pie mezcal marg. You can also pair it with white or red wine.

This is the perfect fall tart for every occasion. It is incredibly easy to make, and it will impress all of your friends! Full of sugar and spices, with crisp layers or dough and sweet fruit.
1 hard pear, sliced thinly

4 tbsp of sugar in the raw
3 tbsp of brown sugar

1/4 cup of crushed pecans
2 tbsp of maple syrup
- Thaw your phyllo dough. I placed mine in the fridge overnight. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
- Slice your pear and figs extremely thin (1/6 of an inch). If you have a mandolin slicer, use that. Remove any pear seeds and stems, as well as fig stems.
- In a small bowl, combine sugar, cinnamon and pecans. Mix until combined.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place one sheet of phyllo dough on the paychment paper. Crush completely with melted vegan butter then sprinkle the sugar, cinnamon and pecan mix on top. Repeat for all additional sheets.
- Scatter place pears and figs on top sheet. Leave approx 1/4 between each fruit slice and leave room on the edges for a “handle.” Brush top of fruit with vegan butter. Spray top with cooking oil.
- Place in oven and cook for 15 minutes, rotate then continue cooking for 15 minutes or until the phyllo is golden brown and the fruit is soft.
- Drizzle with maple syrup and allow to cool for 10 minutes. Eat immediately or store in the fridge in an air tight container.
