    foodtvfan's Note:

    This caramelized pear tart recipe is from a grocery store flyer. For the short crust pastry use Rich Shortcrust Pastry #140597 or no-roll short crust The Easiest Shortcrust Pastry #95116, or your favorite short crust pastry. I think this recipe would be equally good with caramelized apples or other fresh fruit. Serve with rich custard or vanilla ice cream.

      Made the pastry you suggested from bluemoon downunder's recipe, & it worked just fine! I followed your tart recipe right on down, even to including the pear brandy for a more intense pear flavor! Loved the caramelized pears & everything about this tart! Thanks so much for sharing the recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

      This is my first time using my tart pan/making a tart and it came out beautifully! I could not find ground almonds and my food processor is broke so I took slivered almonds and ran them through my nut chopper and got small pieces. I left out the brandy and got lazy and used a store bought pie crust and it was delish! Made for PRMR.
