Such a long time I didn’t post anything! Too much work, I guess…
My friend, Corinne, lent me a recipe book from Eric Kayser, a famous french pastry and baker who open many shops around the world. If you go to Manhattan, you will certainly find one .
His tarts are simply “gourmandes”. I tried to make the grapefruit & pears , and it was a success.Here the recipe.
- 125 g butter
- 125 g ground almonds
- 125 g powdering sugar
- 3 eggs
- 30 g pistachio paste
- 250 g sweet crust pastry (pâte sablée)
- 2 Pears (in syrup for me)
- 2 grapefruits
- 30g apricot glaze
- In a bowl, mix 125g soft butter,125 g ground almonds, 125 g powdering sugar, 3 eggs and 30g Pistachio paste until the mixture is light and creamy. Cool it in the fridge.
- Roll out a sweet crust pastry, line a mold and keep in the fridge.In the mean time, peel 2 grapefruits, removing all the white skin.
- Peel 2 pears cut in slices. Drain well.
- Preheat the oven to 180°C (360°F).
- Spread the pistachio cream in the pastry and stick nicely the grapefruits and pear pieces into the pistachio cream.
- Bake for 40 minutes and finish with the apricot glaze.
Thanks Corinne & Eric for this share!
