Preheat oven to 190 C / Gas 5.
In a large bowl, combine eggs, flour, sugar, almond extract and melted butter. Pour into unbaked pastry case. Arrange sliced pears in spokes radiating from centre.
Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, then reduce temperature to 180 C / Gas 4 and bake for 25 to 35 minutes or until custard is firm. Cool completely before serving.
best dessert I have ever eaten or made really easy to make recommend. put on ground almonds just as the custard is setting so they don't sink into the custard and they go golden brown when you bring it out of the oven. - 17 Oct 2013
