Pear and gruyere tart

Check me out, I’m on a roll.

Also, look at these pears!

Aren’t those lovely?  They are the key ingredient in my pear and gruyere tart.  Other key ingredients include…

1 pie crust

4 pears (peeled and sliced)

1 tbs lemon juice

1 cup brown sugar

2 tsp ground cinnamon

1 tsp ground nutmeg

1 tsp almond extract

8 oz gruyere cheese (grated)

Okay so preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  Once it’s heated up, put the pie crust in for about 15 minutes.  While your crust is baking you can make your filling.

Mix pears, lemon juice, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and almond extract in a bowl.  Then mix in about 2/3 of the grated cheese.

When the pie crust is done add the filling and then top with the rest of the cheese.  Put it back in the oven for 35-40 minutes, until the cheese is a nice golden brown.  Take it out and allow it to cool before serving.  IT’S SOOO GOOOOOOD.
