Why I Love This Recipe

I came up with this on the fly. The family wanted dessert and I didn't have anything available at hand without running to the store. So digging through the pantry and fridge I managed to find everything I needed to make a pie crust, along with a few pears and oranges.

Ingredients You'll Need

3-4 Peels and chopped Pears
1 Whole Orange (Sub: 1/2 cup high pulp orange juice) Juiced
1/4 cup Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla
Your Favorite Pie Crust Recipe (I used the crisco pie crust recipe for mine)


Preheat Oven 325

On the stove, boil down your top 4 ingredients

After it softens the pears and is covered with a syrup remove from heat

Get out your cupcake tin for this one

Roll out your dough

Using a large cookie cutter or knife, cut out round dough pieces to place in cupcake tins

Fill the mini crusts with the boiled down pear pulp

top each tart with another round piece of dough and cut off any extra dough

cut a hole in the top of the tart

Place tarts in over for 30-35 minutes. Remove when tops are a golden brown.
