This Cranberry Pear Tart is a delicious and stunning crowd pleaser! Fresh, tart cranberries combine with juicy pears and almond cream in a sweet crust. It's perfection!
I love the new series, Bringing Back Sunday Dinner, on Simple Bites. When I first saw it, I couldn't help but nod my head in agreement as I read along - yes, let's bring back Sunday Dinner! My Grandmothers always put on a big mid-afternoon meal every Sunday when I was growing up and I always think of those gatherings with such fondness. I'm ready to Bring Back Sunday Dinner too!
So what makes Sunday dinner different than dinner every other night of the week? It's the extra preparation! For me, the main dish part of the meal is easy - I normally put a lot of effort into the main dish anyway. At our house, dessert is not a normal part of our regular meals. Just having dessert at all will make Sunday Dinner a little more special, but having a really nice dessert will make Sunday Dinner really memorable.
Thanks to the new Simple Bites series, I'm committing myself to real Sunday Dinners this year. We will enjoy a meal made more special by inviting family and friends, prepared with extra special care, and dressed up a bit with our nicest tableware. Best of all, we are going to have Dessert on Sunday. I'm getting excited just thinking of all the dessert recipes that will be gracing our Sunday table this year.
To start us off right, we are enjoying this Cranberry Pear Tart with Almond Cream. It takes a little more time than the simple brownies and puddings we normally whip up after a meal, but it is well worth the extra effort. The kids definitely knew something special was happening when I brought this beautiful tart out!
I'm looking forward to all the Sunday Dinners ahead of us. I'm really looking forward to the memories and traditions that this extra effort once a week will pass on to my children. But if I'm being honest, I am most looking forward to Dessert on Sunday - I think the kids would say the same thing, especially when it includes this Cranberry Pear Tart!
This Cranberry Pear Tart is on our permanent favorite dessert menu. It's just that good.
