A Simple Tart for Breakfast

We were craving something sweet for breakfast today. So in a departure from our usual morning fare, I made an adaptation of Marcella Hazan's recipe for A Farm Wife's Fresh Pear Tart.

Not too sweet and full of fruit, this recipe works for breakfast, snacks or dessert. The only drawback is that you must wait 50 minutes before pulling it out of the oven. ("Is the pear tart done, mom?" "Is it done now?" "I'm hungry! When will it be done?")


I usually buy Bosc pears for this recipe, but today I used some Pink Lady apples that we had on hand. As long as you use a firm-fleshed apple or pear, I think you'll be fine. Hazan apparently said of this recipe: “Only an active campaign of sabotage could ruin it.”

A nice confidence booster, don't you think?

Looks fabulous. And beats the heck out of the scrambled eggs and toast I served up.

That is just beautiful! I had leftovers from dinner for breakfast. :)

This is embarrassing, but...I think Rowan and I will already be polishing off the tart this morning!
