Cranberry Pear Tart

A delightful pear tart accented with dried cranberries. While it's lovely as is, it also would be good served warm with ice cream.


8 to 10 servings


1 sheet refrigerated pie pastry
4 cups sliced peeled fresh pears (about 4 medium)
1/3 cup dried cranberries
1/3 cup thawed apple juice concentrate
1 teaspoon apple pie spice


Preheat oven to 375°F (191°C). Press pastry onto the bottom and up the sides of an ungreased 9-inch tart pan with removable bottom; trim edges. Generously prick the bottom with a fork; set aside.

In a large skillet, cook the pears, cranberries, apple juice concentrate and apple pie spice over medium heat until pears are tender. Pour into crust.

Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Cool on a wire cooling rack.
