Pear Tart – as delicious as it is lovely.

This pear tart, typically Parisian, is called tarte bourdaloue in France, and is the pride of any French patisserie.  Traditionally, it’s filled with almond cream, however, this recipe skips that (and the calories) without forfeiting any delicious flavor.

For some of the almond flavor, try adding a touch of almond extract to the marscapone instead of pear brandy
