Pear and Toasted Walnut Tart

This is a really quick and easy recipe that can be made a hundred different ways! The recipe I’ve altered is my Mom’s Lemon Dream Bar recipe. Start by making a basic
Short Bread Crust; 1 Stick Butter (never, never, never use anything other than butter, I will never, never, never talk to you again if you do.) soften butter in microwave for 30 Seconds. Mix in 1 cup Flour, 1/4 cup Powder Sugar and 1/8 teaspoon Salt. Mix until a nice ‘Pastry’ like dough forms.

A Nice 'Pastry' Like Dough

Lightly press dough into a Buttered 8 x 8 inch pan.
Bake 17 or 20 minutes at 350 degrees.

Now slice your desired Fruit. Mix 1/4 cup of Minute Tapioca with the Fruit. I used Bosc Pears. I’ve also made this with Apples, French Black Plums or Apricots. Your imagination is the limit.

Now we’re going to make a simple ‘Custard’ style topping. Mix at a medium speed the following; 2 Eggs (Eggs should always be at room temperature), 1 cup Sugar (I always use less Sugar, who really need all those extra carbs. in this case I used only just over 1/2 cup), 2 tablespoons Flour, 1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg (watch and you’ll see, I put Nutmeg, literally, into everything I make), and 1/3 cup liquid, in this case I used Honey, Milk and Vanilla Extract. After this is completely blended pour on top of your cooled Short Bread Crust. Arrange fruit slices and if you wish, sprinkle with Toasted nuts, I used Walnuts. Bake this in a 350 oven for 15 to 20 minutes. Let set at least an hour before cutting and eating!
