Pear Tart

Theres nothing like finding your inner french girl. And nothing better than having a real french sister in law to show you the way. Thanks to Mimi sharing her secrets, Im getting pretty good at tarts

PIE SHELL

 A Pre made short crust pie shell is fine or you can make one homemade. I buy pre-made at the resturant supply store. 

 Lay out a cool pie shell onto pie pan, shape onto bottom and sides of pan. Perforate  bottom with fork in a few places. Place in refrigerator while peeling and preparing pears.

Peel, half, and core pears.

 Place halves, cut side down, in a circular pattern on top of pie shell .

 Sprinkle with sugar. 

Score each pear and top each pear with a pat of butter.

Place in a hot oven and

Bake for 30 minutes or until pear juice is evaporated and pears start to brown.
