    I added raspberries and slivered almonds and used fresh pears. Delicious and beautiful!  -  10 Feb 2019  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Quite delicious. The crust is more like a batter, so it is easier to spread it with a wet rubber scraper than able to be pressed into the tart pan. I used a 9" pan. There is a strong taste of maple syrup in the crust. I used fresh pears. Next time, I will lower the temperature a bit and cook it longer. Thank you for the recipe.  -  03 Feb 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
