It’s a quick and easy tart that’s ready in less than 30 minutes. I served it with caramel drizzle and a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Asian Pear & Apple Tart
Preheat oven to 375 degrees

1 Asian Pear (aka: Japanese Apple/Pear)
1 Golden Delicious Apple
1 tablespoon Flour
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg
1 tablespoon Lemon Juice
Zest of 1 Lemon
1 10 inch Pie Crust (store bought or homemade)
Egg Wash (1 Egg + 1 tablespoon Water)
1 tablespoon Sugar

Peel, core and slice the asian pear and apple into very thin slices. Place the sliced fruit into a large bowl.
Sprinkle the lemon juice and zest, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg, over the fruit and mix well.
Roll out the pie dough into a 10 inch circle and place it onto a parchment paper covered baking sheet.
Arrange the fruit slices into a few layers leaving about an inch of border around the pie crust.
Fold the crust up and pleat it over the fruit. Brush on the egg wash and sprinkle the crust with sugar.
Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until crust is golden brown.
