Pear Tarte, be still my heart!
I love to cook. As I have said before, I am an "ok" baker. My goal over the last year has been to perfect the HOMEMADE PIE CRUST. As I have found with so many other scratch made items, scratch made isn't harder, it's simply better. If you have ever made our BUTTERMILK BISCUITS, you know this to be true.
Sure it's easy to pop a pie crust from the freezer and thaw. However, you have no idea what is in it, truthfully. Making a pie crust or in this case, a tarte, is so simple. Simple enough, you may never buy another one. But if you must, get a really good store bought one and go to town! Here is the recipe!
How To Make It
Easy, simple ingredients. You can use any firm pear you may find. I like the Bosc pears as they have a sweeter taste and cook very well
- 2 ripe Bosc pears, peeled and sliced
- 1-3 tablespoons sugar, divided
- 2 tablespoons orange marmalade
- 2 tablespoons local, raw honey
- 1 tablespoon flour
- One Pie crust, either homemade or store bought
- Roll out tarte crust to desired thickness. Tarts can be thicker than pie crusts to hold that yummy fruit.
- In a large springform pan. Gently use the rolling pin to put crust on the bottom of the pan. Gently place pan bottom in pan and close.
- Use fingertips to form a pretty edge to tarte.
- Mix 1 tablespoon of sugar and flour and sprinkle over crust. Place pears on tarte in whatever pattern your heart desires. You can sprinkle the fruit with about a ½ teaspoon of sugar if you'd like but not necessary.
- Place in a preheated 375 degree oven for 40 minutes.
- In a small boiler, heat marmalade, honey and last 2 tablespoons of sugar just until combined and loose.
- After 40 minutes of bake time, drizzle the marmalade honey mix on top and bake for another 15-20 minutes. Until Tarte is brown and pulls away slightly from the sides of the pan.
- Cool in pan for 15-20 minutes. Remove springform sides, cut, add some ice cream (or not) and Enjoy!
Tips and Tricks
Yes! It will cook up just as good. You just want to make sure you have edges in whatever pan you use so the glaze will not run off.
Yes! Any firm fresh fruit will work. For softer fruits, you may need to lessen the cook time. Just set it for half time and watch it!
I love scratch made cooking but I also know what it means to work, be a mother AND love to cook. Shortcuts are not always bad. If you can enjoy cooking by using a store bought pie crust, then I am for THAT!
