Today, it was time to crack it open and see how everything was doing. Honestly, I was expecting some mushy fruit. To my surprise, everything turned out great. All of the fruit had a firm texture and quite a boozy rum wallop!
Boozy Pear Tart!
1 jar of sliced pears packed in rum*
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 prepared unbaked tart crust (my crust recipe is here)
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
Combine the butter, brown sugar, and flour in your mixer fitted with the paddle.
Mix on high speed until everything just begins to combine.
Sprinkle the brown sugar evenly across the bottom of the prepared unbaked tart crust.
Layer the sliced fruit over the brown sugar.
Sprinkle the prepared crumb topping over the entire tart and bake at 325 degrees for about an hour.
* I don't expect most folks to have any boozy rum-soaked pears lying around. Feel free to substitute your favorite canned pears and rum. I have not tried this, but it would be worth a shot. Please be sure to share with me if you decide to give it a try! :)
