I actually made a dessert. I don`t make desserts. I don`t even much like desserts. I like savory to sweet. This was my kind of dessert. I was agonizing what to make and since I already was making tarts, knew that a dessert one was the way to go. I was going to make an apple tart. Then a pear tart. Then a combo tart, which my mom said was not a good idea so back to the apple tart. Then I happened on this, a savory pear tart. I was going to make it as is, and pass it off as dessert, then modified while cooking and is became a dessert.
This tart is the supermodel of the bunch, it`s all style and substance and was deemed the sleeper.
I used this recipe as my base with some changes. I don`t like dried figs, which this called for, so I just roasted my own.
