French Pear Tart….My first time!!!

Well after a long day at work I couldn’t wait to get home and make the French Pear tart. My tart pan did arrive today and its in the oven. Here is my progress so far…..

I found the crust a bit difficult to pull together. I don’t have a food processor so first I cut all the ingredients together, then I did small batches in my 3cup mini food processor. It seemed to work out fine. Again without the aid of a processor I ground the almonds in my mini and combined the rest in the Kitchen aide with the wire whip as recommended. By the way I looked at ground almond flour in the store tonight and it was $13.99 for a 16oz bag….Holy cow!!!
Finally I decided to go with the canned pears in the interest of time. Twenty-nine minutes and counting and my tart will be done. More pictures to come!!
