This pear tart is an example of European-style pastry at its best. The filling is a rich and seductive almond paste known as Frangipane. Its name comes from the Italian expression frangere il pane, meaning "break the bread". The pears in this tart beautifully soak up the sweet syrup.

Rich and cake-like almond filling encircles whole pears, half-poached to tender-crisp perfection, and baked into a buttery (yet paerve!), melt-in-your mouth shortcrust to create a gorgeous medley of fall-friendly flavors. With a quick brush of sweet Amaretto-honey syrup and a sprinkle of crunchy toasted almond slices, you’ve got a rustic and delicious gourmet tart that is truly a work of art.
