Pear and Frangipane Tart

The best pear varieties to use for baking are Anjou and Bartlett because their texture remains firm and smooth. Anjou pears are almost egg shaped, with green skin that often has a yellow tinge when ripe. Bartlett pears, also known as Williams' pears, have thin skins that ripen from dark green to light green and then to yellow. When choosing pears for baking, select ones that are firm but not rock-hard, have a good fragrance, and are smooth and unblemished with their stems still attached. Autumn is the best season for these pears, but they are available almost all year long.

Not only does this tart look like it was professionally made, but it tastes like it to. I always double the recipe & use a rectangular tart pan. I use Grand Marnier instead of the rum, and used a food processor to make the dough.I also juiced the lemon after I removed the zest, added about 3 tbs cold water. Then sliced my pears into slices and let them soak in the lemon water mixture until I was ready to assemble them. Then drained them and arranged them in a scallop fashion. Make this for your next dinner party. You will not be disappointed.
Pros: Adaptable, Impressive, Will Make Again

Perfect tart recipe – received rave reviews!
June 19, 2014
Reminds me of the pear and almond tarts I ate in Paris, would absolutely make again. The only part that might present some difficulty is placing the pears in the tart, but other than that, this is a pretty easy recipe that creates an impressive result. Note: I made the crust in a food processor and it was perfect.
Pros: Appearance, Impressive, Will Make Again
