I just love the fall! All the things, pumpkins, scarecrows, falling leaves etc… but can you guess what I love about fall the most? if you guessed food then you guessed right! There is just something so comforting about all the food in fall. Hmmm…maybe that is why they call it comfort food. My first “fall” treat of the season is this super easy and yummy semi homemade pear tart. I do realize that technically is not fall yet, but I couldn’t resist with all the pears staring at me in the produce section.
Here’s my quick and easy semi homemade pear tart recipe, just in case those pears start to stare at you next time your in the grocery store. While you at it check out my blog post http://mylittlewhitebarn.com/early-fall-touches-in-your-home/ , it may make you want to grab a few extra to add to your home decor.
