After reading Dorie’s comments on this French pear tart I knew I had to make it for my husband. It was all she promised. Marc my DH said it was just like we had bought it in a pâtissurie in France. I loved it and will make it again.
Here is Dorie’s link. http://www.doriegreenspan.com/2009/01/tuesdays-with-dorie-french-pear-tart.html
I used pears from a can.
I made the crust with one whole egg as suggested by Steph from http://awhiskandaspoon.com/. It worked better than using just the egg yolk. Thank you Steph.
I also made this chocolate cake and it is so good an easy to make I highly recommend it too. From David Lebovitz http://www.davidlebovitz.com/2014/09/helenes-brownies-brownie-recipe/. So little clean up everything goes into the casserole. I make it with almonds not coco nuts. I have made it on numerous occasions.
