Bruleed Coffee and Pear Tart

Doesn’t Bruleed Coffee and Pear Tart sound very fancy. Well fancy it is and delicious tops the tart! You would think such a fancy-named tart would be complicated to make, however, our recipe has a few ingredients and simple steps to follow. I always find it quicker to use a pre-made shortcrust pastry, thawed, gently baked then filled with a coffee cream center and Beurre Bosc pears that go a little crispy when baked in the oven.

Don’t forget the finely chopped glaced ginger and a touch of blow torch fire to take your tart to perfection!

To make Bruleed Coffee and Pear Tart, you will need the following ingredients:
