This tart has a lovely taste coupled with the natural taste of pear.As the soft pear is

naturally soft ,you needn’t stew it beforehand.

Frangipane tart is a filling made with cream and almonds .The addition of fruit can be

your choice.Fruits like the normal pear and apple have to be stewed for 2-3 minutes and

then added to the making.Please do try ,and send in your suggestions .
