      Title: Pear tart (adapted from julia child)
 Categories: Taste
      Yield: 4 Servings
      4 oz Unblanched almonds
    1/4 c  Sugar
      2 tb Flour
      1 tb Unsalted butter
      2 ts Grated lemon zest
    1/2 ts Pure vanilla extract
      2    Egg yolks
      1    10- or 12-inch puff pastry
           Round, chilled and pricked
           All over with a
      5    Barely-ripe pears (such as
           Anjou or Bartlett), peeled
           And halved
  1 1/2 c  Apricot preserves, heated
           And sieved
           Unsalted pistachios, chopped
           For garnish
  Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  In a food processor combine almonds, sugar, flour, butter, lemon zest,
  vanilla and egg yolks; process to a coarse, granular texture. On a
  heavy parchment-lined baking sheet, spread almond mixture evenly over
  pastry circle. Using a melon baller, core pears. Slice 8 to 9 of the
  pears halves very thin horizontally, holding them to maintain their
  shape. Carefully lift and transfer halves to top of tart, arranging
  them to fit in a star pattern, narrow ends pointing in. Shape
  remaining pear half to fit in center of tart; score top, but do not
  slice through.
  Bake tart 40 to 45 minutes, until pears are golden brown and tender.
  Glaze pears liberally with hot apricot preserves and sprinkle
  pistachios in a line down each pear half for garnish.
  Yield: 8 servings
