Tweet Pear Tart with Walnut Pastry
Pears in syrup in pastry case containing ground walnuts. This is presented by J.Salmon's ) 'Favourite Somerset Recipes' as being an English specialty, but we can find no reference to it, or anything like it, in the English annals. It appears to be simply a modification of the French Tarte Normandie aux poires et aux noix, for which we provide this original receipt in unadulterated Google Translate:
