How to Make Pear-fect!

Step-by-Step

  • 1For the Cake-Pie-Tarts:

    In a medium mixing bowl combine white/yellow cake mix & salt. When you've finished stirring add the milk.
  • 2Now lightly grease your muffin tins & sacrifice a little extra cake mix to the counter-top/work surface. Roll out your dough. You may use cookie cutters to make circles or mini-crusts. I grab the dough by the handful and press it into the lightly greased muffin tins.
  • 3Place muffin tins in pre-heated oven and let bake for about 7 minutes and check them.
    The cake mix will cause the tarts to rise. Take a spoon and lightly touch the center. They will cave to form the tart.
  • 4Let bake for about 8 more minutes. Remove from oven and cool.
  • 5Pears (or apples):

    Combine pears (sliced & diced) with butter,lemon juice and water in a medium pot over medium-high heat. Stir in the brown sugar and cover with lid. let sit for 5 minutes.
  • 6Reduce heat to simmer and remove lid. Let sit for 10 minutes. Strain.
  • 7Pudding:

    Combine instant pudding & milk in a medium bowl and set in a cool space.
  • 8All together now!:

    Gently lift tarts (after they've cooled!) from muffin tins with a spoon to the edge. Fill with pudding. Add a spoonful (or so) of pears and sigh/dash with cinnamon.
  • 9Enjoy, you earned it! ;)
