I decided to make a pear tart today, since it has been very rainy and that always says, sewing or baking. I decided I wanted to make this tart again, after I made a very silly mistake on the recipe last time. I won't say what I did, I'm just too embarrassed.
I bought this cook book in France, and I have to use my scale that I bought there when I cook from it. You feel ever so professional when your are using it :)
This part of the recipe makes the whole house smell of vanilla and pears...yummy. They have to poach in sugar water and a vanilla pod.
The pastry is a sweet crust. One that I don't normally make, but I sure do love how it rolls out.
You then have to blind bake it for a few minutes before you put it all together. I forgot to take a snap of the filling, which is ground almond, eggs, sugar and a bit of flour.
My tart pan was a bit too small, so I had a half pear left and too much filling, but I think it turned out quite lovely.. the tart pan is another "Gien" piece that I have. It has matching little dessert plates with all kinds of fruit on it.
I hope it tastes good.
