TWD: Rosy Poached Pear and Pistachio Tart

Lauren of I'll Eat You has chosen rosy poached pear and pistachio tart for TWD this week. The tart is made up of 4 components - crust, nut based pastry cream, poached pears in red wine and caramelised pistachios. This is a lengthy recipe and I almost spent whole night preparing the tart. But I'm glad that I gave the recipe a try as the tart was SO yummy that I almost licked the plate clean!

Don't just take my words for it, give the recipe a try and I'm sure that you'll like the tart as much as I do! Recipe can be found here.

Prettiest one I've seen so far! I had to pass this week, posted Nutella Peanut Butter Cookies instead that I made a few weeks ago. The holiday put me way behind, just never had time! ;-/

Oh, your tart is gorgeous! I have read so many wonderful reports about this tart; I am going to have to give it a try. I didn't have pears and pistachio nuts so I made Dorie's blueberry pie instead.
