Pear Tart

The pears are delicious this time of year, so I thought I would share my delicious pear tart recipe, I whipped one up on the weekend as its always a hit! 

90g Soft butter
1/2 Cup brown Sugar
2 Eggs
1 Cup almond Meal
1/4 Cup plain flour
1/4 tsp Baking powder
2 tsp lemon rind
2 Pears, peeled, cored and quartered
1/2 Cup brown sugar extra
Raw sugar for sprinkling
Double cream to serve

Preheat oven to 160°C.
Place the butter and sugar in the bowl of a food processor and process until just combined.

Add the eggs, almond meal, flour, baking powder and lemon rind and process until just combined.

Spoon the mixture into a lightly greased 9.5cm x 33cm loose-bottom fluted tart tin.
Place the pears and extra brown sugar in a bowl and toss to coat.

Press the pears into the tart mixture and bake for 35–40 minutes or until cooked when tested with a skewer.

Sprinkle with raw sugar and allow to cool in the tin.

Serve with some King Island double cream to really tip the diet over the edge!
