    ml
    butter
  • 250
    ml
    castor sugar

Method

 
Preheat oven to 200 °C.
Unroll the pastry onto a greased baking tray and prick the base and side with a fork.
Mark a 5 cm border around the edges - don't cut right through the pastry, just score it. This allows the edge to rise and forms a raised border for the tart.
FILLING
Place the butter, castor sugar, almonds, vanilla extract, flour and eggs in a food processor and process until smooth.
Spread over the tart base.
Press the pear slices into this mixture and bake for 30 minutes, or until the filling is golden, the fruit soft and the pastry all puffy and golden.
Serve hot with thick cream.
