Dessert Recipe: Pear Tart

Pear Tart


  • A fresh, no pre-baking pie crust (use any basic pie crust you are familiar with to make the crust. This can be made ahead of time and kept in the freezer)
  • 3 eggs
  • 4 large & ripe (but firm) Anjou or Bosc pears, cut into 1/5 inch thin slices, length-wise
  • 1 cup crème fraîche
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp almond extract
  • Apricot marmalade

Beat the eggs; add crème fraiche, sugar, almond extra & corn starch, mix well.

Arrange the pear slices on the fresh tart crust, gently pour the mixture over pears until it fills up the tart.

Bake in the 400 F degree pre-heated oven for 25 to 30 minutes or till golden brown.

Spread a thin layer of apricot marmalade on top of the tart for the golden shining coat.

Serve at room temperature.
