Tuesdays with Dorie: French Pear Tart

French Pear Tart 002Happy New Year and happy baking in 2009!

TWD starts its 2 nd year and the first recipe in 2009 on page 368-369 from Baking: From My Home to Yours978-0-618-44336-9*: French Pear Tart has been chosen by the author herself Dorie Greenspan

I am not very happy with my result: First I prebaked the tart shell a bit too long and then I fanned my pears lengthwise. No comparison with this. But isn’t it the taste that count? This tart served only four: Two adults and two very hungry teenager

For the recipe visit Dorie’s website (Edit 14.12.17: the author removed the link https://www.doriegreenspan.com/dorie_greenspan/2009/01/tuesdays-with-dorie-french-pear-tart.html). For the „Friends of the Scales“ the ingredients in metric units:

    I think the pears look find fanned the other way. Sometimes I think Dorie needs diagrams for her instructions. I completely misunderstood the biscotti recipe (marching band instructions). Happy New Year!!

    What are you talking about? Your tart looks beautiful! I love the powdered sugar on top. I forgot to do that on mine. Glad you enjoyed the recipe. Definitely the most important thing!

    I don’t think it matters which direction you fan your pears, as long as it tastes good.
    If your family polished it off in little time, it must have been pretty tasty!

    I’m sorry this one didn’t turn out the way you wanted it to. I, too, get very frustrated when things don’t look the way I want them to. (In fact, I have bread cooling right now that didn’t turn out the way I wanted it to. Grrr.) But at least everyone enjoyed eating the tart. =)
