SRC: Fearless Homemaker’s Chocolate Almond Pear Tart

Fearless Homemake Chocolate Almond Pear Tart-2 For October’s Secret Recipe Club, I was paired with Amy of Fearless Homemaker. Amy lives in Nashville, has a super cute daughter and tons of cute aprons!

Amy has TONS of delicious recipes like Bacon-Wrapped Manchego + Mango Chutney-Stuffed Dates, Brussel Sprouts with Pancetta and GarlicBete Noire (Flourless Chocolate Cake)Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars and Chocolate Avocado Pudding.

I also made her One Pot Tomato Basil Chicken Pasta but didn’t have the opportunity to take photos, so I also made her Chocolate Almond Pear Tart.

The tart turned out really well and in my not-so humble opinion, is a perfect fall dessert! Mr. Bean kept commenting how good it smelled while I was making it and while it was baking and the end product definitely didn’t disappoint! It was super tasty and had a perfect light texture!

Since it’s naturally gluten free, I only made a few modifications. I used almond flour instead of grinding whole blanched almonds and reduced the amount of sugar to 2/3 c. from 3/4c.

  3. Add eggs, margarine, cocoa powder and vanilla extract and beat until smooth.
  4. Scrape into tart into pan and smooth out.
  5. Peel pears and cut into 12 pieces. Rub with lemon juice to prevent discolouration.
  6. Arrange pear slices on chocolate mixture, so they slightly overlap. Don’t press in.

  8. Heat jelly in microwave or stove until liquified. Gently brush pears with jelly. Let set for at least 20 minutes.
  9. Remove tart from pan and serve.
  10. Enjoy!
