My To Ten Fav Picks Of MM #46

Make this Custard and Pear Tart for the holidays! 

I love this dessert and I wanted to share it with you in time for the holidays.  It's really easy and inexpensive to make. But it looks and tastes like it's from a gourmet kitchen. Best of all, if you're taking this to a holiday gathering, no one else will probably bring anything like this. 

 Set this little baby down between the pumpkin and pecan pie.

I'm sneaking in a picture of my Audubon book turkey before Thanksgiving's over! I love the brood of baby turkey's following their mom.  Anywhoo..............
 I used my 5 minute, super easy, super flaky pie crust recipe here. I doubled the amount of pie crust for this recipe to make the tart sturdy, but it's up to you.

 See the creaminess? Yummmmmm...........
Custard Pear Tart
2 pears- peeled, cored and cut in 1/2" slices
1 cup of sugar
1/4 cup of flour
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
2 eggs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
1) Arrange pear slices in prepared pie crust.
2) Mix butter and sugar. Beat in eggs one at a time until fluffy. Stir in flour and vanilla. Pour over pears.
3) Bake 1 hour, until pears are soft and custard is set in the center. cool completely before slicing.

Tip* If you're using a tart pan, mix the pie crust dough in a separate bowl before pressing it into the pan. And oil the sides of the tart pan with an oily paper towel.
