Slow Roasted Baby Beets
Isn’t it amazing how one well chosen adjective can make a dish sound irresistible? Once a marketer, always a marketer. My days slogging hours devising marketing strategies in a little cubicle are long behind me, but my fascination with the power of words has never left me. I get almost as much joy picking apart restaurant menus, hunting for rich words, as I do eating the food when it arrives. Words that celebrate the men and women who grew the food, that paint a canvas of golden fields and years of tradition, have a way of making the most basic dishes sound more appetizing.
Today, in celebration of the power of words, I give you the recipe for a Rustic Pear Tart. It could just as easily be called Quick and Easy Pear Pie, but that wouldn’t sound nearly as appealing. Pear Tart with a Rich Hand Tossed Butter Crust would also be a longer, but equally appropriate option.
This pear pie does come together very quickly and it tastes amazing. The crust is crumbly and buttery and matches well with the sweet pears. We had some friends over for dinner on Sunday night and I got this pie in the oven in 15 minutes. As we ate, it filled the house with the mouth watering aroma of caramelizing fruit. By the time we were ready for dessert, it was piping hot and the perfect vehicle to melt a big scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Call it rustic, call it easy, no matter how you describe it, this pear tart is delicious. Ingredients Instructions
