Asian Pear Ginger Tart

I love easy recipes. I also like changing them up to cater to my personal tastes. So when I came across Pioneer Woman’s easy apple tart, the gears in my mind started turning on how I could alter this recipe to make other similar desserts for different seasons and moods. I had some Asian pears sitting in my fridge that needed to be eaten. Those seemed like a good substitute. And instead of brown sugar, ginger sounded like a good idea. When I went to my BFF’s house to make Beef Wellington, we also made this Asian pear ginger tart.

I have to say, this was delicious. I really like the spicy note the ginger gave to the sweet pear. We were munching away at the leftover pears in the bowl and thinking how good a compote of this would go on pork chops.
