Darn...I wanted to put this recipe online, and you already have it here! This is such a great recipe! Everyone LOVES it when I make it. I made it for my mom's last birthday, and didn't even get a slice. My recipe is only slightly different. I bake it in a 9x9 pan, and have only 1/4 teaspoon vanilla in the bottom crust and only 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla in the filling. I cut the pears into thin slices (more than 8) and cover the top, then sprinkle a light layer of cinnamon over the entire tart. (I don't measure that.)
this was very good...think next time i will double the filling and add way more pears
GOURMET! Used 1/3 less fat cream cheese and would next time try to use a little less butter in crust, just to save on calories. Could of course use various fruits on top.
