Pear and Apple Tarts

Apple Pear TartPears and Apples

Okay, I’ll admit it – I was on a bit of a cooking kick this past weekend.  My third entry in my Sunday of French Cooking was individual Pear and Apple Tarts.   I wanted to make a dessert using fresh pears, I also had some apples on hand and kicked up the flavor with lots of ginger and cinnamon for the Arthritis Kitchen good for you component of this dish.  I even did the pastry from scratch for these ‘free form’ tarts.   The pears and apples were sauteed in butter until nicely browned on both sides and tender.  The addition of spices and a generous splash of brandy made for a wonderful combination of flavors.
