Our Chef’s Best Ever Classic Pear Frangipane Tart or Tarte Bourdaloue in French is a delicious lightly spiced Fall and Winter pastry full of almond notes and perfect pear texture. The Sweet Pastry is filled with Almond Cream and topped with Poached Pears.
This crisp flaky crust is the right contrast to the tender juicy fruit-filled center of this pie that is bursting with cherries and a handful of cranberries to add the right balance of tartness. There are hints of citrus and spice in the filling as well, adding subtle nuances of gourmet elegance.
