Fresh Pear & Almond Tart

Pears are fantastic at the moment and this dessert uses only 5 ingredients and can be made in 5 minutes and on the table in 40 minutes ~ it’s also a great way to use up those pears that may be getting very ripe! Its almondy chewy texture is an easy version of macaroon.

For 4 People you will need:

2 Ripe Pears (or one very large pear) Peeled, cored and diced
1 whole free range egg (beaten)
½ Cup of self raising flour
½ Cup of white sugar
¼ Cup of almond meal or (grind your own)

(if you like it really almondy you can always add a few drops of almond essence)


In a bowl, using a fork mix the beaten egg with all the dry ingredients.

You will have a thick paste like dough.

Either place the dough evenly in a greased shallow baking dish ~ or just spread out on circle on baking paper on a baking tray. Either way it should be about ½ cm deep.

Press into the dough the diced pear.

Bake in a pre-heated 180 c oven (160 c fan forced oven) for about 35/40 minutes. The tart should rise, become crusty and resemble macaroons.

Serve warm with thick thick cream.
