Easy Pear Tart Recipe

A wonderful recipe that is truly easy to put together with a homemade batter and fresh pears.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 45 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes
Servings 8 people

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Butter room temperature
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 whole large egg
  • 2 whole bosc pears
  • 1/4 cup orange marmalade
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 350° F.

    Butter a circular tart pan and set aside.

    Combine the flour and baking powder in a medium bowl and set aside.

    Using an electric mixer, cream the butter and 1/2 cup sugar at high speed in a large bowl. Lower speed to medium, add the egg, and beat until incorporated. Gradually add the flour mixture until fully incorporated. The dough will be very soft.

    Push the dough into the pan with floured fingers to form an even crust. Arrange the pear halves, top to bottom, cut-side down. Sprinkle with the cinnamon and the remaining sugar. Bake until the crust is golden brown, about 45 minutes; let cool.

    Heat the orange marmalade and lemon juice in a small saucepan over medium-low heat, mixing until combined. Remove from heat and brush gently over the entire tart. 

    Serve and enjoy.
