This easy peasy tart comes together in a snap.  It is fun to serve and wonderfully delicious.

The members of the From Our Dinner Group are celebrating Pears today.......

National Pear Day

We share Recipes From Our Dinner Table! Join our group and share your recipes, too! While you're at it, join our Pinterest board, too!

I put this together one day on a whim as a surprise for my family after dinner.  I don't normally serve dessert unless we are entertaining.  With desserts this easy and delicious that could change.

How to cook Rustic Pear and Almond Tart

  1. Roll the pie dough into a 10" round and place onto a baking sheet that is covered in parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  2. Combine the pear slices, sugar, flour and cardamom.  Toss to coat and then spoon onto the crust leaving a 2" edge all around.
  3. Fold the edge up and around the pears leaving the center open.  
  4. Bake in a preheated 450* oven for 15 minutes.  Sprinkle the almonds over the opening of the tart and place back in the oven for another 5 minutes.

  1. Wow, so easy and so beautiful! I'd like a slice for breakfast!

    1. We did have the leftovers for breakfast the next couple of days Karen.

  2. All those pear dishes do indeed sound tempting! Last night we were treated to a beautiful tart made from wine-infused pears. I recently made a balsamic pear salad with romaine, dried fruit-nut mixture, and a bit of soft cheese. So many possibilities!
