Rustic Pear Cardamom Tart

with 2 comments

pear cardamon tart

I recently made my first batch of pear butter with my friend and neighbor, Katie. We found the cheapest pears in town at Costco and bought a couple of flats for our project. We got about 10 cans of delicious pear butter goodness that will last us long into the winter and into the new year. Even after making mounds of delicious fruit butter, there was a pile of pears to use. I adapted this recipe from The America’s Test Kitchen Family Cookbook, and honestly this tart crust is one of the easiest I’ve worked with.

I brought this tart to a family dinner last night and it was well received. You can modify the filling to your tastes. If you’re using berries, 3 cups is the standard measure. There are some great sales going on around town for apples, ’tis the season. An apple and stilton cheese tart would be delicious, the tart possibilities are endless.
