Tarte Bourdaloue (Pear and Almond Tart)  
World Traditional Recipe フランス

Popular French style pear tart called “Tarte Bourdaloue”. It is said that the tart was called after the street “Rue Bourdaloue” which, in turn, had been named for a seventeenth-century preacher, Louis Bourdaloue. Traditionally, either pate brisee, pate a foncer or pate a foncer sucree is used as the tart dough, and a combination of frangipane and pear compote is commonly used for the filling. However, different types of dough are now used by patissiers. Reflecting religious beliefs, the pears are sometimes arranged into a cross, however, you can arrange them as you like, such as in a radial pattern or a flower shape.
