How to Make Pear And Almond Tart ...

Step-by-Step

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180c/350f. Grease a fluted loose base fan tin. Make the pastry by rubbing the butter into the flour, until it looks like breadcrumbs . Mix in the sugar and use the egg to blind the dough together .If the mixture appears to dry add to that some water , knead to a dough . Roll out the dough to the size of your tin , then over the top of that place a sheet of cling and baking beans to blind bake the pastry for 10 minutes
  2. Make the filling whisk eggs and sugar together with the electric mixer until pale and light . Fold in ground almonds then the butter and finally the flour and baking powder.
  3. Assemble the tart put some of the almond mixture into the pastry case , and fit in the pears halved. Fill the gaps with the remaining almond mix. The pears will end up with a thin covering of almond mix. This is good as it will prevent them from drying out in the tart. Bake in the oven for 40 minutes .
  4. Once baked leave to cool , you can sprinkle with some cinnamon sugar over the top (1/2 teaspoon caster sugar ,1/4 cinnamon mixed together) or just serve with custard ..
