This happens to be one of my favorite tarts. Almond filling sits on top of a golden crust topped with pear halves. My dad usually makes it because I was always under the impression that it’s a lot of work. To my surprise it is fairly easy to make.  I used this recipe for a larger crowd, perfect for THE HOLIDAYS.  I hope you enjoy it as well❤️. Hawaii Coffee Company/p>/p>

This is what the crust mixture consistency should be like before pressing into the pan


The crust before baking, make sure you pierce all over before blind baking. The crust mixture will have consistency of sand, it’s normal
