Pear almond custard tart

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1½ cup All-purpose flour
1 \N Egg
1 tablespoon Water
1 tablespoon Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
7 tablespoons Butter
6 \N Pears, peeled, halved and cored
3 \N Eggs
¼ cup Sugar
¼ cup Fine-ground almonds (or store-bought almond paste)
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
⅔ cup Heavy cream or sour cream

Method: Heat oven to 375. Quickly combine first 6 ingredients to make crust. Don't handle more than you have to; it gets tough if it's overmixed.

Roll out and line a 9-inch tart pan with the dough. Arrange the pear halves attractively cut side down in the shell so that the stem ends are all facing into the center and bake for about 20 minutes. If the pears don't all fit that way, chop some and mound them in the center. Combine the remaining ingredients and pour into the pan and bake until firm, about 30 more minutes. Serve warm or cool. You can substitute pears in almost any recipe you have that uses apples. Pear pie. Baked pears in pie crust. Fried pears. Pork loin with sliced pears. Enjoy, very much.
