Flaky crust with a creamy almond filling topped with vanilla-infused pears and toasted almonds. A simple and delicious tart recipe.
Combine all the dry ingredients (1½ cups flour, 1/2 cup powdered sugar, 1/2 tsp salt) in a large bowl.
Slice 1 stick cold butter into to the flour. Keep cutting until the chunks are about the size of a pea (or add everything to the blender and pulse until the chunks are pea-size).
Add 1 egg and mix the ingredients together with a spoon. If using the blender, add the egg and process until the dough starts to stick together.
In a large pot combine, 1 cup sugar, 3 cups water, 2 tbsp lemon juice, 5 tbsp vanilla extract, 1 star anise, 1/2 cup alcohol and 1 cinnamon quill. Bring to a boil.
Put 3/4 cup almonds and 2 tsp flour into the bowl of a food processor and grind.
In a bowl of an electric mixer beat, 125 g softened/room temperature butter and 1/2 cup sugar.
Add 2 eggs one at a time and mix well between each addition.
You can use store-bought crust instead of making one yourself
*Instead of making the glaze, you can brush the tart with honey, heated jam, or alternatively sprinkle with powdered sugar.
