So I had this midterm last Thursday and I had to study so much for it that I am still drained. That is why this post is being written now and not last Friday when I made this ooohh-la-la deliciousness tart. Event hough I slightly over baked the tart shell and burned the edges a little bit ( all due to school stress 🙂 it turned out unbelievably delicious. There is just something so a-mah-zing about pears and almond together I think. It is a perfect match. They totally should get married 🙂 and have babies 🙂
Ok, so the recipe is from here and here. Another match made in heaven. One of them is a simple pear tart, the other one taught me how to make the frangipane, which is this amazing almond filling that you can find in many almond-y pastries. I combined the two recipes because I felt like it and because I am brave. The result? You’ll see.
First you need to make sweet pie dough, chill it, roll it out and peel some pears.
The baby galette is the result of not having the heart to throw out the leftover pie dough. Cute, isn’t it?
