  • 2
    In small bowl, stir together cornstarch and 1 tablespoon water. In medium bowl, stir cornstarch mixture and remaining filling ingredients. Spoon filling mixture onto centre of crust within 2 inches of edge. Carefully fold 2-inch edge of crust over filling, pleating crust slightly as necessary.
  • 3
    In small bowl, beat egg and 1 tablespoon water; brush over edge of crust. Sprinkle sugar over crust edge.

    Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until pears are tender and crust is golden brown. Cool 15 minutes. Cut into wedges; serve warm. Cover and refrigerate any remaining tart.

Expert Tips

  • *To toast almonds, heat oven to 350°F. Spread almonds in ungreased shallow pan. Bake uncovered 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown.
  • Serve with whipped topping or a scoop of your favourite ice cream.
  • Because this recipe calls for a ripe pear, it requires a bit of planning. Store-bought pears may take up to 1 week to ripen.
