Here’s what I want you to do: Drop everything Monday is asking for and make this tart. Seriously. It’ll change your day — nay, your week. Nay — your LIFE.
(OK that might be an exaggeration, but the point is it’s really tasty.)
Ever since I saw Deb’s gorgeous mosaic tart (ummm yes, “ever since” meaning like three years ago) I’ve been wanting to have a go at my own version. I’m generally more one for eating fussy, fancy desserts rather than making them — and as you can see by the rustic-ness of this tart, I need a lot of practice in the latter — but this one is worth every effort it takes to delicately arrange the thin pear slices in a circular design. And even that isn’t so hard.
Plus, in the end you get a stunning, caramel glazed tart with a sweet pear filling and a tender, flaky phyllo crust. It also happens to be super delicious, too.
