Cranberry Pear Rustic Tartlet


This is such a fun and easy recipe. You don't need to worry about making your crust from scratch, Pillsbury makes a delicious pre made crust. I always keep a few boxes of these pie crusts in my freezer for that spur of the minute creation. Bartlett pears are so sweet and juicy that the cranberries give the perfect perk to this yummy tart!


1 Pillsbury pie crust
2 fresh pears, Bartlett
1 handfull of fresh cranberries
1 Tbs. brown sugar
1 Tbs. of sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. flour
2 Tbs. butter, cut into small pieces
1 egg, beaten


Lay your pie crust onto a lightly floured surface. Cut your pears into small and thin pieces and place into a large bowl with a handful of fresh cranberries. Add your sugars, cinnamon, salt and flour. Mix until all coated. Spoon fruit mixture into the center of your pie crust. Dot with butter. Fold the edges of your pie up accordion style. Brush crust with egg wash and sprinkle with white sugar. Bake in a 375˙ oven for 30 to 40 min or until bubbly and golden brown.

  3. I have been browsing online more than 2 hours today, yet
    I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.
    In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet
    will be a lot more useful than ever before.
