First of all- very tasty! I thought the way the recipe was written was kinda confusing- I'd re-write with- the ingredients and steps like- 1. the pie crust direction and put in fridge or freezer while you go on to other steps. 2. the topping directions- set aside 3.prepare the pears- (my pan took 3 large pears) set aside 4.make the filling- spread in the prepared crust- then go from there. Also I think slightly unripe pears would hold up better after 40 mins in the oven. So I'm giving it 4 stars- only because of the way its written. Everyone loved it- not a bit left!
Very good! I didn't have any Brandy, so I made an apple juice reduction to take it's place. I also needed to add 2 more pears to fill a regular pie dish. Thanks
A Big hit at Thanksgiving! My son requested an almond tart, but I had never made one before. This was really easy to put together, looked fancy, and everyone went nuts over it.. especially the men. Thanks for a great recipe!
