Pears reign supreme as the baking fruit in winter. From warm pear crisps to this week’s recipe for Pear and Almond Tart, pears turn up often in my desserts from fall to winter. This recipe takes advantage of pears’ natural affinity combining with almonds for a sublime, yet quick tart. Prepared pie crust is fitted into a tart pan with a removable bottom. The crust is topped with crumbled almond paste, then sliced pears are arranged decoratively on top.
Optional Almond Crunch Topping
In a small bowl, combine sugar, egg, flour, vanilla and buttermilk. Pour over tart. Prepare optional Almond Crunch Topping by combining ingredients in a food processor, pulsing several times to coarsely chop the almonds and ginger. Sprinkle over top of pears. Or, omit the topping and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon granulated sugar.
