I love this delicious pear tart filled with a sweet almond paste. It is one of my favorite French desserts! The tart was invented in a pastry shop on Bourdaloue street in Paris, hence the name Tarte Bourdaloue. This French classic is absolutely delicious!
I tried many recipes for the Tarte Bourdaloue, and my favorite is by far the recipe by French cook Valerie Paul Labaume. It is divine!
Please note, the recipe is for a small tart pan of about 8–9 inches, so if you have a bigger tart pan, adjust measurements accordingly.
Also, if you do not have time to make the tart crust, you can use a store-bought sweet pie crust. However, this tart crust recipe is particularly delicious, so I really recommend making it.
