Almond Pear Flan

READY IN: 1hr 35mins
Recipe by teresas

I have prepared this for most holiday get together for years. You can prepare pastry case up to a day before adding filling and pears. Bake up to 3 hours before serving. This holds up well and can be prepared in advance and served the next day.

Lovely presentation but the chewy texture of the almond flan is odd and the crust was not flavorful. Has potential and quick to put together.
