Yes, supposed to be ending soon. How? I am not sure. Still a lot of testing. No, I am not pleased about that.
That said-- I completed most of my Christmas shopping last night and very pleased about that.
This morning- I made a pear tart using a pie crust left over from Thanksgiving.
The recipe I used was sort of from a Costco Holiday Food issue-- however I did not use apples nor was it puff pastry. It is pretty good. Better if I had a dollop of vanilla ice cream.
I used two meduim pears, about a third of a cup of brown sugar, quarter of a stick of butter, a bit of cinnamon. I sauteed to release some of the juices and should have added a bit of corn starch to thicken the filling. After about 10 minutes in the oven I noticed the filling was too juicy so I poured off some of it. This in no way lessened the flavor. Great way to insure you do not waste an extra [boxed-- already made but in rolls] pie crust.
