Pear-Custard Tart

This delicately flavored tart is filled with vanilla-poached pears and brandy-spiked custard, then topped with sugary toasted almonds. It makes an elegant finale for an autumn gathering.

I made this tart last week for Thanksgiving and I am pleased to report that, at least in my guests' opinion, it scored far better than all the traditional pies that were served on that day.
The custard is a great backdrop that makes it the tart more refined and showcases the pears very nicely.
If I can add one personal touch: I suggest adding a cup of sweet white wine to the poaching liquid and after poaching, letting the sliced pears soak in a little dash of pear liqueur before placing them in the pie crust.
Pros: Impressive, Will Make Again
