Patisseries are my first thought when Paris is mentioned. I loved the croissants, macarons, tartes.
Soft pears give a sweet bite to this flaky tarte crust. The buttery dough melts with a cinnimon-sweet sop.
French Pear Tarte
1 1/2 cups flour
3 Tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoons salt
2/3 cup butter, cold and cubed
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
Sift dry ingredients together. Coat butter in mixture. Mash and mix together with hands.
Add egg and vanilla, and mix.
Roll out between two sheets of parchment paper, and put in tarte pan. Prick the bottom of the crust with a fork to prevent bubbling.
Bake 425* for 18 minutes, or until brown
