Last week I posted a how-to make your own powdered almond. Here is what I did with mine ; a delicious pear almond tart. Deliciously generous and so satisfying. I love this dessert…
I used fresh pears because it is in season and they’re delicious at the moment but you could definitely use canned pears if that is what you have on hands! With a hot cup of tea, it makes for a real comforting snack/dessert.
Pear almond tart (serves 6-8) :
- 1 short crust pastry
- 100g powdered almond
- 100g butter
- 2 eggs
- 20g flour
- 100g sugar
- 2 pears
Preheat the oven at 180°C/350°F.
With a whisk or a hand mixer, mix the softened butter and sugar together.
Add the eggs, flour and powdered almond. Mix well.
Put the pastry in a tart dish and poke it with a fork.
Pour the almond mixture in.
Slice finely the halved and peeled pears. Add it on top of the tart.
Bake for 20 minutes à 180°C/350°F then lower the temp to 150°C/300°F for 5-10 minutes so it won’t burn on top.
Let it cool before cutting and serving.
