      As I was hunting for a savory tart and not a dessert, I opted to use this recipe as a guide and work out the details as I went. I omitted all the sugar and just did a basic pastry dough recipe, cooked it weighted for about 10-15 minutes. I then topped the baked crust with 2 thinnly sliced pears, a small bulb of fennel that I sliced very thinly, then sauted it for about 5 minutes. Then topped it with a good quality blue cheese (I used Maytag). In a 350 oven for 15 minutes until cheese was melted and beginning to brown. Perfect, in my less than humble opinion. Not so much a review as a redo...
