Ripe, sweet pears are delicious in many desserts. Try using them in places you would use apples, such as in pies, tarts, crisps, and crumbles.
In this impressive tart, the flaky crust, crunchy caramelized sugar, creamy custard, and soft roasted fruit bring all the elements of a divine dessert. You can make all the components ahead of time, and brûlée the pears just before serving.
