Poached Pears

It is a lovely thing when you get a phone call from a friend asking you to go apple/pear picking in the middle of the fall. It is even more beautiful when, after you had to decline the offer, the friend shows up with a HUGE bag full of pears anyway. What else to do but make a pear tart?

Pear and Frangipan tart

It. Was. Amazing. And you can find it here. Though, if you are going to make it, please be wary of the fact that there is a little THREE HOUR cooling time here, half and hour there, a pre-bake of 30 minutes, and an actual baking time of 55 minutes. This sucker isn't fast food by any means, but it is SO WORTH IT.

**And, if you want to poach your pears in Verbena, vanilla, maple and lemon juice like I did, no one is going to stop you.
