  • 1
    In 3-quart saucepan, heat milk and grated gingerroot over low heat about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until very hot but not boiling.
  • 2
    In medium bowl with electric mixer, beat egg yolks and sugar on medium speed 4 to 6 minutes or until pale yellow. Beat in flour. Gradually beat in warm milk mixture until well blended.
  • 3
    Return mixture to saucepan; cook over medium-low heat about 5 minutes, stirring constantly, until mixture is very thick and begins to boil. Boil 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; stir in butter and vanilla. Pour into medium bowl; place plastic wrap on surface of pastry cream. Refrigerate until completely cooled, about 1 hour.
  • 4
    Meanwhile, heat oven to 450ºF. Prepare pie crust as directed on package for one-crust baked shell using 9-inch tart pan with removable bottom or 9-inch pie pan. Trim edges if necessary. Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.
  • 5
    Fill baked shell with pastry cream. Cut pear halves into thin slices; arrange on top of tart.
  • 6
    In small microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate and shortening on High 45 to 60 seconds, stirring once halfway through microwaving, until melted. If necessary, continue to microwave on High in 15-second increments, stirring until smooth. Drizzle over tart. Store in refrigerator.

Expert Tips

  • Tip: Tightly wrap any leftover fresh gingerroot and freeze for up to 6 months. Grate what you need from the frozen gingerroot, re-wrap and return it to the freezer.
