Pear Tart

Invite me to a late summer or fall gathering and it's likely that I'll bring a Rustic Fruit Tart. I love this recipe at this time of year.

In summer, blueberries or peaches (or both together) are my faves. As fall arrives, apples and pears, and once an apple quince mixture, become my favorites.

Sometimes I make dough for several tarts at once and freeze them, ready to get rolled out.



For Thanksgiving tomorrow, we're bringing a tart with:
  • 4 cups pears
  • 1/2 c toasted pecans
  • 1/2 c craisins
  • 1 tsp vanilla
I hope that whether you're celebrating Thanksgiving tomorrow or not, you're able to enjoy some of nature's beauty and bounty!

Oh YUM! We have great pears in OR, much better than the apples we get. If that was in our house, it wouldn't make it to Thanksgiving Day. :-)

That looks so delicious

Oooh that looks so tasty! You've made me hungry now! I hope you have a great Thanksgiving Day.

Not too many more hours to wait before sampling the tart!

That might be the only drawback to this dessert. You can't really try it out beforehand - at least not without people noticing!!

That tart looks delicious. I'm especially intrigued by the crust. We did celebrate and I baked two traditional pies, not nearly as yummy looking as yours. It was bittersweet as it's the last time with DS and their home here. They are now Oregon residents.
