French Pear Tart

I was very excited to make this French Pear Tart for Tuesdays with Dorie. The reason for my excitement was that this week's recipe was chosen by Dorie herself! I figured that if anyone was going to choose an awesome recipe, it would be her. After all, she literally wrote the book.

This recipe also gave me an opportunity to break in my new tart pan that has been sitting, lonely, on the shelf for the past few months.

I was extremely pleased with how this recipe turned out. I was very skeptical about how the almonds would pair with the pears, but it was fantastic. The tart turned out a lot lighter than some of the other recipes I have made with TWD, and was sweet without being cloying. This is definitely something that I will be making again.

This pear tart was brought over to our house for a "1/2" birthday celebration (started when I was 15 1/2). We had ice cream cake also but this tart "took the cake". It was delicious! I am a chocolate lover but this fruit tart was something I thought I would never try and am glad I did. This is a keeper!
