Thin Crust Pear Tart - Tarte Fine Aux Poires For Gluten Free Thanksgiving & A Giveaway

Monday, November 15, 2010

Pear Tarte Fine

As I was making this tart for Shauna's Gluten Free Thanksgiving Baking Round Up, I started reflecting on how much I enjoyed being an expat in America around the holidays. I now have an entire second family, a tight group of friends and handful of added occasions to celebrate new traditions and holidays such as Halloween, Thanksgiving, etc... Even Christmas in B's family is light years away from mine. Starting with the food of course.

I did not grow up around pumpkin pie, pecan pie or double crusted apple pie but like anyone entering another family, expat or not, there are new traditions I have come to love. Some I have been privileged to make my in-laws discover as they let me bring my own creations to their tables. One of these dishes was my grandmother's Tarte Fine Aux Pommes. She was famous for it. And for good reason. One of the simplest and yet most aromatic and satisfying thin crusted pie I have ever had.

Forelle Pears

She'd start by making a very basic applesauce with heirloom and very tart apples, a bit of cardamom, and lemon. She'd then layer it at the bottom of a very thin pate brisee crust and top the tart with thin slices of fresh apples. It was thin on all counts, rustic and absolutely amazing. The textures, fragrances. That bit of crunch from the crust, the oozing applesauce underneath and the pretty slices of apples on top. A feast for all senses.

When Shauna sent out an email to put together a massive round up of gluten free baking recipes for Thanksgiving, my head started spinning. Wow! Thanksgiving was indeed so close and I felt like I was already one train wagon behind! But it is indeed necessary to start such a big round up filled with so many options for baked treats for the holidays. Whether you are gluten free or need to bake gluten free for someone coming to break bread at your table, that round up provides you with so many delectable options.

Go check it out on Shauna's blog. It's awesome. And tempting. And delicious.

Centerpiece

I first thought about making pumpkin pie but it's not our true favorite to celebrate. We tend to like apple pie and tarte tatin, tarte fines and the like. Instead of using apples like my grandmother, I chose one of my favorite Autumn fruit, Forelle pears. They are juicy and fragrant. Cute as can be and one fits in my pocket quite perfectly...

I was going to go with Shauna and Danny's recipe for Asian Pear Tart in their book but the Asian pears were literally the size of mini watermelons so I substituted Forelle pears and instead of making applesauce like Grandma would have, I followed Shauna's directions to use apricot jam. I knew there was a reason I was holding on to that last of homemade apricot jam from this summer! You don't have to go that extent but don't skip on the quality is all I'm sayin'...

Pear Tarte Fine

Did you see the giveaway going there on her blog? Pretty cool, non?! Guess what?...Shauna is graciously giving one copy of their book to one of you guys! Whether you like stories, recipes, tips, challenges, there is something for everyone. There is love to share. Beautiful words, delicious recipes and inspired photography by Lara Ferrroni. A feast for the senses!

All you have to do is leave a comment on this post between now and Sunday November 21st at midnight Easter time, when my better half will draw a winner at random. No anonymous comment, sign an initial, X or a name so I know you are not a robot! One entry per person. Good luck!

Pear Tarte Fine


Forelle Pear Tart - Tarte Fine Aux Poires - Adapted from "Asian Pear Tart" in Gluten Free Girl & The Chef.

Notes: I am writing down the recipe as Shauna and Danny wrote it for their book and adding my changes as I go along. The only reason behind my substituting flours was due to our personal preferences and what I have on hand in the pantry.

For the crust:
1/2 cup sorghum flour - I used millet flour
1/2 cup tapioca four - I used corn flour
1/2 cup potato starch
1/2 cup sweet rice flour
2 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon - I left it out
pinch of salt
8 tablespoons (1 stick) frozen butter
1 large egg
1/4 cup ice cold water

Filling:
6-7 medium Asian pears - I used 10 Forelle pears
1/3 cup sugar - I used 1/4 cup honey
1/2 vanilla bean, split and scraped - I used 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/3 cup apricot jam

Prepare the tart shell:
Sift together the millet flour, corn flour, potato starch and sweet rice flour into a large bowl. Add the sugar, cinnamon if using and salt. Sift into another bowl (I admit I skipped that part).
Grate the frozen butter directly into the dry ingredients with a medium cheese grater. Work with your fingertips until the dough feels like cornmeal or large pieces of sand.
In a small bowl, whisk the egg and the water together with a fork. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture. Add the liquid, and start gathering the dough together with your hands or a fork. Gather the dough into a ball and refrigerate for at least one hour or overnight.

Butter and flour an 11-inch tart shell (I used 2 rectangular pie shells). Pull the dough from the refrigerator and let it come to room temperature a little. Roll the dough between 2 pieces of parchment paper to the approximate size of your tart pan. If the dough tears a little, just piece it back together with your fingertips.
Freeze the tart dough for about 30 minutes.

While the dough is freezing, preheat the oven to 375F. Place a piece of parchment paper on top of the dough, fill with dry beans and blind bake for 15 minutes. Let cool.

Prepare the filling:
Core and peel the pears and toss them with the honey and cardamom (or vanilla bean and sugar if using).
Spread the apricot jam evenly at the bottom of the pie shell and layer the pear slices on top. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool and serve with whipped cream if desired.

Misty said...

Stephanie Quilao said...

Coming to your blog always feels like stepping into sugary heaven :-D

Now see this is what I'm talking! When people with allergies. intolerances, or whatever like myself see delicious foods like this we no longer start to feel without. Food just looks delicious!

Siri said...

I love your recipes and photography! Thanks for sharing, between this and the crepe recipe I am going to be busy in the kitchen this week! Not sure I can find persimmons around here though.

Sallie said...

As always, gorgeous post. I have the cookbook and love it. Still working hard at gluten free cooking and baking. Helen, you are the best photographer and cook. I want to be like you and Shauna.

Laura said...

I will have to try this crust, I am trying to reduce gluten from my diet.

It looks delicious!

squirrelbread said...

A stunning tart and tribute to Shauna's work. Always a sucker for pie-type things that include fruit and jams.

Cheers,

Tia said...

sounds like a great giveaway. and your post and pictures are gorgeous as always. I would expect no less :)

Magda said...

Such a beautiful tart! Love the thin crust.

Mr. Jackhonky said...

Your tart looks amazing, but then your photos always look so stunning.

I love that you published Shauna and Danny's original recipe and then added your own substitutions next to it. Like reading inheriting a relative's old worn cookbook, and opening it up and see how that relative had crossed out things and marked up the pages with their own ingredients. It shows how a recipe is a living document.

The Gluten Free Thanksgiving roundup has just been amazing. So many beautiful posts! I'm pleased to have been a part of it.

K said...

Wow, that tart is making my mouth water! While I do like pies, I LOVE tarts. I've been thinking of making a tart for Thanksgiving this year, rather than the traditional pumpkin, pecan, or apple pie. Or maybe I can just make both! I may just have to save this recipe for next week..

sydney85 said...

I will make the pear tart this weekend. It looks wonderful.

The giveaway is fabulous.

The Duo Dishes said...

Pears are a great sub for apples. Sometimes apples get a little too much love, and pears deserve some too. :) Loving the jam in there as well.

Claire said...

Wow, how lovely! I really need to get one of those rectangular tart pans...

Great giveaway!
~Claire

M @ Betty Crapper said...

Beautiful! You've made someone who doesn't enjoy pears want to try this.

Caroline said...

Great giveaway! Love the tart, looks beautiful!

Amanda said...

Laura said...

Mmmm. I'll have to try this tart this Holiday season for my grandma, who has recently discovered she can't eat anything with wheat (and probably gluten). I've also looked at Forelle pears lately and not yet tried them!

kathryn said...

I love pears! Thank you!

xx

Edwina said...

I am still loving your blog and recipes! Thanks for the lovely and delicious inspiration!

Molly said...

Thank you for reminding us that Thanksgiving need not follow the formula -- why not pear tart instead of pumpkin pie? I'm in charge of vegetarian dishes for the Thanksgiving table, and this was just the reminder I needed :)

Alison said...

I can't wait to try this recipe. My mom recently developed a gluten intolerance. We're both pretty picky about our baked goods and it's been especially hard to find pies and tarts that don't feel like a poor cousin of the full-gluten thing. I think we have a winner here!

The Bontekoes said...

Love pears and this tart looks so lovely - the book sounds FAB!

Más allá de 365 sonrisas said...

I like how you cook gluten free and show others how to do it with love, passion and cute photos. I try to do it to!!! Kind regards,

I'd definitely love to win the book! I keep hearing so much about it- it sounds lovely.

Nina said...

It is funny how posts like this don't make me hungry, but make me anxious to go and work, cook, bake.
thanks for being inspiration...

Jessica said...

I try to bake gluten free for my friend with celiacs as often as I can. Having a cookbook for it would be awesome.

This tart is absolutely stunning, I love the cross-sectional cut of the pears to show off the pattern in the middle. I find your blog so inspiring, so thanks! What a fun giveaway, too :)
-CH

Palila said...

Mmm... pear tart. Fabulous!

Nuna said...

I have spent last saturday doing your Cinnamons. First of all I had to convert all the measures in gramms and I don´t know what happen but the dry yeast was not that efficient as I though. Maybe a incorrect translation!
Anyway, I think I´m giving a new try. Wish me luck.
I follow your Blog since few months and I find your photos and recipes really good. Thank you.

hannepa said...

What a beautiful tart!

joanna said...

that tart looks incredible and absolutely Id love this book
-Joanna

Saee Koranne-Khandekar said...

I don't know what I'm more excited about--the giveaway, the tart, or the photography--you've left me open-jawed, as always!

Helene said...

Nuna: maybe it's not the conversion: what was the expiration date on the yeast? Was your liquid at the right temperature? Being too hot or too cold could really do harm in the end.

Maritxikis said...

I am glad I am going grocery shopping after checking your post. It looks delicious. Thanks for another gluten free recipe.

Lane 'n Lynn Losing Together said...

Mrs. G said...

Deliscious looking tart!

miniNigella said...

Autumn is my favourite part of the year....all these apple pies I can finally eat in season....your recipe looks delicious !!

Phong said...

The tart and the pictures all look so amazing!

Margaret M. said...

Your grandma's tart looks fantastic. I'm glad you included instructions for her original version as well as the apricot and pear variation.
I did a little gluten free baking about a year ago when I thought I had celiac's disease. My blood tests came back negative and I took a break from being strictly gluten free.
I also have Crohn's disease and have been really sick for the past couple of years.
I think now would be a good time to start eating gluten free again and see if I can cut out some of my nasty symptoms.
- Margaret

Erin said...

This tart looks wonderful...can't wait to try! This will be my second recipe since I made the lemon goat cheese cakes (they were gone in a day!)

Lorna said...

Your tart looks delicious, I will have to try it.

Indigo said...

This looks incredible. My mother is allergic to gluten and lactose and people sometimes ask what on earth she can eat. I feel like showing them this post and saying 'swap the butter for a dairy free alternative and she could eat that'.

Skye said...

someday i'll get to be in charge of thanksgiving. as it is we still go to my mom's where she and grandma preside. But when that day comes i'm so excited to try beautiful creations like this to see if they become traditions. thanks for a blog full of beutiful possibilities =)
