  • 1 prepared Pie Dough
  • 6 ounces canned Almond Paste
  • 1/4 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 cup cold Butter (cubed)
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon Salt

step-by-step directions
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a tart ring and place on a baking sheet. On a lightly floured surface, roll out pie dough to 1/8-inch thickness. Gently press dough into the sides and bottom of the tart ring.
  • In a food processor, combine the almond paste, sugar, egg, butter, vanilla and salt  and pulse until fluffy. Evenly spread the mixture into the bottom of the prepared tart shell. Fan each sliced pear halve over the mixture in a decorative fashion.
  • Bake tart for 45 minutes or until filling is dark golden brown. Remove and allow to cool to room temperature. Slice and serve with whipped cream and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
