Miso Browned Butter and Brie Pasta with Roasted Beets + Walnuts.
I am in full on planning mode.
And I love it!
I am a planner by nature, but ever since I jumped head first into this blog, it’s kind of been day by day, week by week. Well, that’s a slight exaggeration. I have still been planning my days + making lists, but just not as detail oriented and organized a I’d like. BUT now, now I am changing! I’m going back to my old ways, because you guys, I live for planning! I love knowing what the day, week or maybe even (if I am really, really organized) the month holds! OKAY, but I am not THAT organized… yet! It’s more like knowing what the week holds….and even that can be hard, but I am slowly, but surly getting there.
Is anyone else with me? Any type A planners out there???
I spent my weekend planning, working and getting my life organized, because well, I have decided it would be just TOO crazy otherwise and I really don’t handle chaos all that well.
My mom? She thrives on chaos, but me? I fall apart. Yes, we are polar opposites. But I love her and sure would not be where I am now without her!! Shh, but she is the secret to my success. No I swear, it’s true.
So yeah, I am all energized and ready to go and it feels so good! I still need to figure out how to get to bed earlier, but I dunno I feel like that’s everyone’s problem, it’s just life.
Anyway, on to this caramelized pear and hazelnut crumble tart, it’s something new and different for me. I am not really a pear person, like at all, but see, I somehow came up with a pear recipe for the book. And while I love the recipe, I’m still just not sure if pears are really a popular thing.
SO… I thought I would test out a pear recipe on the blog and see how it went.
Are you guys into pears? Do you like apples better? Are pears good with certain things/holidays/events?
I’m hoping you like pears because I ended up LOVING this tart. Granted, I think that caramelizing the pears REALLY helped, but even still, I love this tart.
It’s a hazelnut frangipane filling, caramelized pears and THEN… a buttery hazelnut-almond crumble. Delish, right? YES.
I know that most people would consider this a dessert, but to me… it’s totally breakfast… or brunch… or lunch. Just a little dusting of powdered sugar is all you need, and well, YUM!
I made the crust super simple, just butter, flour and buttermilk. Nothing tricky and definitely nothing fancy. While the crust chills out in the fridge, you make the filling and caramelize the pears. It’s really a simple tart to make and perfect for entertaining…which is good, cause you guys, you guys, you guys – the two biggest holidays are coming up on us so fast and I am PUMPED!!!
Favorite time of the year! 🙂
Ok, focus Tieghan… back to the tart.
It’s full of great flavor, not overly sweet, super moist and I LOVE the crunch from the hazelnut crumble. This would be delicious served with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream or just as is. Believe it or not, I did not add any ice cream or whipped cream!
I mean, I probably should have, but I thought this tart was pretty dang awesome with just a little powdered sugar so I stuck with it. Next time though… ice cream!
But really, how do we feel about pears? I am SO curious???

Tell me you love them and let’s make this tart! Tuesday tart making? Yes please!
will Bosc pears work here?
Yes, they will. HOpe you love this!
I love pears! This looks fabulous. My 10.5 month old also loves pears but he gets most of them on himself rather than in his mouth.
haha! Thank you so much! Hope you had a great week!
Type A planner over here raising my hand! 😉 I love pear desserts, especially with brown butter or hazelnuts. This tart is a stunner!
Ever since I was a little kid I have absolutely loved pears! I don’t get them much so when I do it just brings me back to my childhood. I think they are the best plain, but I would definitely be willing to try them in this tart.
Rita’s has a pear favored water ice that is SO good! Haha maybe that could be an idea for a new post.
It says to “divide the dough in half”…. Is it for two tarts or that is a typo?
Can’t wait to try this!!
The dough recipe will make 2 crusts, you can freeze the other one to use later:) Please let me know if you have any other questions! xT
YES on the planning front, and a huge YES to this tart – it looks epic! Love how you made it a hazelnut frangipane, and that gingery crumble is just gorgeous with the pears. Your dessert game is SO strong, Teighan!! X
this is so levely, simple tart and you help us very much with the directions
I love a good soft pear and this looks like the best way to enjoy them! All of your pictures look so delicious! I can totally relate to the type A planner comments too! I feel so much less stressed if I have planned everything out. Good luck with your organization and planning!
