Rustic Pear Tart

Happy Sunday! It’s still nice and steamy down here in Fairhope, Bowen and I waited till late this afternoon to go on our tour de Fairhope-a 10 mile bike ride.


It felt so good to not be fighting through thick humidity and 100 degree temps, I got up early this am to run before church and just couldn’t bear the heat. Our ride was the perfect outside exercise. 

We came home to not the most nutritious supper but oh so delicious. 


I had LOTS of pears that were on their last leg and needed to be cooked quickly, I used half for a steel cut oatmeal brown butter pear topping and the other half for a really yummy, rustic pear tart.



This pear tart reminded me a lot of apple pie. The only major difference was the pears were softer and a tad sweeter.


I LOVED the streusel topping on this recipe, it really sent this dish over the top. 



Now that I have OFFICIALLY broken Whole 30, 2 nights of desserts.. it’s back on the bandwagon! Ill be back with some healthier eats soon 😉
