Pick up a pound of juicy ripe pears and enjoy their sweet succulence eaten just as they are - but save a couple too for this fabulous frangipane tart from Waitrose Home Economist Lisa Abbey Keep pear recipes simple, like this wonderful tart, for great results. English pears cook well, although they should be firm so that they keep their shape. Frangipane is classically flavoured with ground almonds and used to top cakes and pastries. Use ground pistachios or pecans, if you prefer.
Serves: 6 - 8
