I feel like I haven’t done much in the way of these cookbook challenges. Life has been chaotic, and I feel like one day rushes into another. There were a few weeks where I just threw my hands in the air and said “screw it!”.
Side note, I am nearly at my edge for fruit tarts. I am sure you are all about ready to disown me, but I am really wanting some chocolaty and/or cakey desserts. Just non-fruity. I am over fruit in desserts for the moment!
Perhaps it was because I am not in the mood for fruit, that neither I or my husband really cared that much for this tart. I am only so-so with pears in the first place (I have always thought them a little bland), and was hopeful that the additives to the pears (rum, caramelization) would amp up the flavor, but I was still disappointed. Well, you can’t win them all, right? It wasn’t all a loss though… I did enjoy eating the raw dough scraps. That is ALWAYS delicious!
