This is such a simple and delicious way to enjoy pears, and it’s in the oven in under five minutes! This is also a nice tart for a brunch menu.
Pear Custard Tart
3 ripe pears (you can also use canned pears!)
1/2 stick of melted unsalted butter (1/4 cup)
2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 c sugar
1/3 c flour
3/4 c whole milk
more butter for buttering the tart pan
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Butter a tart pan or pie plate. Peel and core the pears, and slice thinly vertically (top to bottom) and fan out the slices in the tart pan.
In a blender add everything else (except the powdered sugar) and blend until smooth.
Bake 40-45 minutes until the top is golden brown and the center is set. It will be puffed but will deflate slightly as it cools.
Dust with powdered sugar and serve warm, room temperature or chilled.
Makes 4 slices. Realistically it could serve up to 8 but I have never met anyone who did not want their full quarter!
