For 4 People you will need:
2 Ripe Pears (or one very large pear) Peeled, cored and diced1 whole free range egg (beaten)½ Cup of self raising flour½ Cup of white sugar¼ 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.
