TWD: Rosy Poached Pears and Pistachio Tart



Lauren of I'll Eat You had the chance to choose this beautiful and wonderful tart.
The preparation is a bit time consuming but I'd love to have a picture of the happy face my two lucky neighbours had when they opened the door and saw it !
I made it exactly as the recipe but didn't have pistachios left to caramelize so I used almonds.
Please visit Lauren for the recipe and the blogroll for more !

That looks great!

I had to pass this week, posted Nutella Peanut Butter Cookies instead that I made a few weeks ago. The holiday put me way behind, just never had time! ;-/

You did all that work and then gave it away? You're a better person than I am!

Oh Yum! Love pistachios. Never combine them with pears, but sounds pretty irresistible.

I didn't make this recipe. Didn't have all the ingredients (namely pears and pistachios) so I made Dorie's Double crusted blueberry pie instead. Looking at your tart...I may have to stop by the store soon.
