- 1Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- 2Butter a 9 inch baking dish or tart pan.
- 3In a food processor, combine the almonds and 1/2 sugar and process until finely ground.
- 4Be careful not to process too long or it will turn into almond butter!
- 5Transfer the ground almonds to a medium bowl and stir in the flour and salt until blended.
- 6In another medium bowl, whisk the eggs until frothy.
- 7Whisk in the milk and melted butter until well blended.
- 8Add the egg mixture to the almonds and stir to blend well.
- 9Pour the batter into the prepared dish and spread to form an even layer.
- 10Peel, quarter and core the pears.
- 11cut each pear quarter into crossways slices, keeping the slices assembled as you go.
- 12Slide one of the sliced pear quarters onto a metal spatula or spreader and set it on top of the batter.
- 13Repeat with the remaining sliced pear quarters forming the spokes of a wheel.
- 14Press the surface of the fanned pears down into the batter so that only the surface of the pears is showing.
- 15Sprinkle the remaining sugar evenly over the pears and scatter the cut up butter bits over the top.
- 16Bake the tart in the upper third of the oven until the batter is puffed and golden brown, 40-45 minutes.
- 17Let the tart cool on a rack.
- 18You could substitute mangoes, peaches, or apples for the pears, and have the same delicious results.
