Step by step recipe


Stage 1 - 15 min.
Pear tart with almond cream
Roll out the pastry into as thin and even a circle as possible, prick it with a fork (to prevent it inflating too much when cooking), then line the tart mould or tin.

Push well into the bottom and sides, then with a knife trim off any excess pastry around the edge.

Put to wait in the refrigerator.

Stage 2 - 15 min.
Pear tart with almond cream
Peel 4 Pears, cut into four lengthways and discard the core.

Cut each quarter in 2 again, then sprinkle them all with the juice of ½ lemon to prevent browning.

Preheat the oven to 210°C or 410°F.

Stage 3 - 5 min.
Pear tart with almond cream
Fill the pastry case in the tart mould/circle with 200 g Almond cream or frangipane. You can add more if (like me) you love it, or less.

Anyway, there should be at least ½ cm of it over the whole base.

Stage 4 - 7 min.
Pear tart with almond cream
Fill the mould with the pears.

You can arrange them in a rosette, like in the photographs, by laying all the pears in the same direction.

Remember to press each piece down gently, to embed them a little in the almond cream.

Stage 5 - 2 min.
Pear tart with almond cream
Finish by filling the centre of the mould with a segment cut into small pieces.

Stage 6 - 30 min.
Pear tart with almond cream
Put in the oven for approximately 30 minutes.

Stage 7
Pear tart with almond cream
If you like, "glaze" (with a brush), the top of the cooled tart with a little apricot glaze.
Remarks
You can vary this recipe in all sorts of ways: changing fruit (apples, apricots...), changing pastry, and even the cream for stewed apples for an apple tart for example, but almond cream and pears really are a very harmonious mixture.
Keeping
1 or 2 days in the fridge, folded in a plastic film.
