I made this Very delicious and amazing tart Tuesday night and served it at my book club meeting. It was consumed Voraciously!
pears poached in carmelized sugar with butter and spices--including real Vanilla beans...heavenly! The scent wafting through my kitchen was luscious!
Alas! My springform pan had disappeared! This was a Vexatious situation. Even though I made a Valiant attempt to locate it in Various places, I was not Victorious. I decided to line a 10inch round pan with parchment paper and this worked beautifully.
I did not discard any puff pastry. I simply used the extra to build up the top of the sides.
Poaching the pears took a bit longer for me than the recipe states.
I served this with a good quality Vanilla ice cream and drizzled the poaching sauce over the tart and the ice cream.
