Pear tartelettes | you-made-that.comI was in a pear kind of mood during the holiday’s when I was baking up a storm and at a whim I decided to bake up these little tartlettes with some leftover pie dough. I was thrilled when they were so delicious, I knew I needed to share these, so I snapped some photos and quickly wrote down what I did. The recipe could change to your personal taste, for example if you don’t have cardamom on hand then just leave it out and add some nutmeg in it’s place. The pears I used were just the regular grocery store variety in my neck of the woods, which were Barlett pears. I had kept the pears in the refrigerator so they wouldn’t ripen too quickly on the counter, if your pears are more ripe than mine the sugar might need to be decreased. Besides the yummy flavor of these pear tartelettes, I love that they are individual servings because most of us are not wanting to over indulge at the beginning of a new year. The next time you have a couple of pears and need a delicious quick dessert think of these little tartelettes for your family and friends. you’ll be glad you did.
