Autumn Pear Tart

Method

1
Preheat oven to 350ºF.
2
Combine the crust ingredients until they’re the consistency of damp sand; press into the bottom of a 10-inch round tart pan.
3
Combine the filling ingredients in a small saucepan; whisk well to combine. Cook over medium heat for 3-4 minutes or until it begins to bubble and thicken. Pour over the tart crust.
4
Peel the pears and add them to a clean saucepan. Cover with water, stir in honey. Simmer 10 minutes, or until pears begin to soften.
5
Drain and slice. Arrange pear sliced over buttermilk custard. Sprinkle with nutmeg.
6
Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until custard is set and pears begin to brown. Cool completely. Serve chilled.
