The first recipe of 2009 for Tuesdays with Dorie was chosen by....Dorie Greenspan herself! You can see the full recipe on her website.
This was my second time making Dorie's tart dough; the first was so hard I could barely cut through it. I didn't quite understand what the dough was supposed to be like. This time, though, I mixed the dough by hand and gently patted it into the pan. It was perfect!
I only used two pears in my tart, but after it baked I realized I could have fit in the third. Nonetheless, it was very good....rich but not too sweet!
