I noticed this recipe on the web site mentioned a few weeks ago, so after it was posted here, decided to try it. It took me awhile to figure out the conversions, but I think I came pretty close. I don't have a flan pan but used a tart pan. Flan pans must be deeper, because I stopped adding pears after 4. No way I would have room for 8, and it still ran over in the oven. I also subbed dried cranberries for the raisins. Other than that, it was really quite tasty. Sweetness and spices were just right. I will have to go look for a larger type pan for next time.
