Anyway, if I am trying to use up leftovers, I use (a) something that will actually go off and (b) as little effort as possible. Sometimes the results are surprisingly good.
Pear & Marzipan Tart
|The photography is not surprisingly good. Sorry.|

Roll out pastry to line a suitable dish (I used a Pyrex lid about 6 inch diameter).
Roll out the marzipan to fit in the base of the pastry case.
Peel, core and slice the pear, and arrange the slices on top of the marzipan.
Bake for about 20 minutes at 180C / 350F until the pastry is done and pears are soft.
Serve with a lump of leftover ice cream, if you have any!
