      7    Firm ripe pears (about 3-1/2
    3/4 c  Sugar
    1/2 c  (1 stick) butter or

    1/2 c  Heavy cream, whipped
  FROM:      Family Circle, 9/72
  A deliciously different way to make a pear tart. Caramelized fresh
  pears bake under a flaky curst. When turned out, the handsome fruit
  design shows.
  Pare, halve and core pears.  Slice 7 or 8 halves crosswise and on an
  angle, each into 4 or 5 slices, keeping slices intact. Arrange as
  whole halves in a 9-inch deep pie plate, rounded side down ans stem
  ends towards center; trim one pear half to a round to fit center.
  Slice remaining pears into 1/2-inch slices, arrange on top to fill
  Melt 1/2 cup of teh sugar over medium-high heat in a small heavy
  skillet; continue heating until sugar caramelized and turns
  golden-brown. Remove from heat; quickly stir in butter until almost
  melted, then pour over pears.
  Prepare piecrust mix, following label directions or make pastry from
  your favorite single-crust recipe. Roll out to a 10-inch round on a
  lightly floured pastry board; place on top of pears. Do not attach to
  BAke in 425~ oven for 30 minutes or until crust is golden and pears
  are done. (Place a piece of foil under pie in case juices should
  bubble out.) Cool on wire rack about 30 minutes. Invert onto a
  serving platter with a rim. (Pie will have formed a syrup.) With a
  baster or spoon, remove syrup to a 1-cup measure. (You should then
  have about 1/4 cup, depending on the fruit.)
  Melt remaining 1/4 cup sugar in a small heavy saucepan. Heat very
  slowly until sugar melts into a colorless liquid, then turns
  golden-brown color and is caramelized. Stir in the reserved fruit
  syrup from the tart. Boil the syrup rapidly until it is reduced to
  about 1/2 cup. It will be slightly thickened.  Take care it does not
  scorch as you are boiling.
  Just before serving, spoon warm caramel sauce evenly over tart,
  reserving 1 Tbsp.  Spoon or pipe whipped cream onto center; drizzle
  reserved caramel sauce over.
