Expert Tips

  • A Sweet Slice of Country: Gently spiced apples and pears mingle in a homestyle tart that brings back delicious memories of an old-fashioned kitchen. Serve it warm with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of ice cream. Leftovers (shhhh!) are delicious for breakfast the next day.
  • Instead of combining apples and pears, try this recipe prepared with either all apples or all pears. Substitute the nutmeg with your favorite spice; try cinnamon, ginger or cardamom.
