Dessert & Baked Goods » Rustic Pear & Goat Cheese Tart
1st place Hoedown 2010 Baking Throwdown Winner Jennifer Wolf submitted this entry made with summer pears. This rustic dessert is a perfect marriage of ripe, juicy pears and candied ginger atop creamy goat cheese. The crust is made with butter that's gently heated to a light brown and then chilled. When baked, the goat cheese gives a subtle tang amongst the medley of flavors. Very deserving of the blue ribbon, Jennifer!
