Honeyed Pear and Macadamia Tart


This is a really simple delicious tart recipe. 
It requires no pastry and is easy to assemble.
It is yet another of the amazing Anna Gare's recipes.


The pears are cut into even chunky slices and assembled on top of butter, honey and lime zest.
A few macadamias are sprinkled around before spooning over the tart base.


The base is a delicious mix of pureed macadamias, butter, sugar, a little flour, egg and lime zest.


Bake in the oven for about 45 minutes until very golden and let rest for about 20 minutes before turning it upside down and carefully removing the foil.


I was actually surprised at how tasty this tart was.
 The honey really came through with the juicy pears and the crunchy macadamias, it was good!

  16. I made this! It tasted delicious, but could have looked better, as about a 3rd of the top came off with the foil. Also, the middle was soft enough that it was falling apart.

    Luckily I ate the evidence. :D

    1. haha, so pleased you tried it! i didn't expect it to taste as good as it did when i made it. I had a little trouble with sticking too. Mine was ok in the middle, i thought i had over cooked it when i pulled it from the oven as it was so brown but turned out that the really caramelised bits were the yummiest! :)
