Ingrients & Directions


2 c All purpose flour
1 1/2 Stick of butter, unsalted,
-cut into 1 inch slices
1 Egg
1 pn Of salt
1/2 Egg shell of water

Pastry:

Process butter and flour until crumbly. Add egg and water, process until a
ball forms, remove from processor, wrap in cling film, refrigerate 20
minutes. Cook the tart shell and cool. (He says nothing of how long or what
temperature!)

Tart:

5 pears, peeled, halved, cored, and poached in a simple syrup (2 c water, 2
c sugar, 1 Tbsp vanilla) 6 oz semisweet chocolate 2 oz butter 1 large jar
apricot preserves 2 Tbsp grand Marnier

Available on Amazon

Poach pears in liquid until soft, about 30-40 minutes. Test for doneness
with a knife – if there is little resistance, pears are done. Remove from
liquid and cool

Melt the butter and chocolate over low heat, then pour into tart shell.
Halve the pears and make vertical cuts from the bottoms almost up to the
stem ends, spread out cut parts like a fan, and arrange in the chocolate.
Allow the chocolate to set. Bring the apricot preserves to a boil with the
Grand Marnier, then brush very liberally over the pears. Cool and serve. If
this is made in advance and refrigerated, take out and let sit at room
temperature for 30 minutes.
