Pear with Almond Cream Tart

Pear with Almond Cream Tart

It was the appearance that caught my attention and the delicate pretty looking tart definitely impressed us on the first bite. Though a little sweet, the combination of meringue (would be even better with more torching), pear and almond pastry tart is not something common.

The meringue is passable but not the most fluffy one I have encountered while the pear toppings is marginally sufficient for fruit lovers.

The X-factor of this tart lies in the tart pastry; the exterior of the crust is crunchy with a slight sugary coat while the core of the crust is textured due to the use of almond powder with a good level of moisture. Thus, making is very unique, be it its presentation and taste.

A mini tart as shown in the picture is $8 nett while the whole tart would cost $35 nett.
