Ingredients 

For the Dough

For the Filling, Drizzle, and Glaze

Directions
  • Sift flour, Probiotic Ocean Salt, and Vanilla Bean Cane Sugar into a mixing bowl.
  • Cube butter into roughly .5" x .5" chunks, then mash into flour mix with a 1/2 cup of cold distilled water, forming a rough ball.
  • Roll into a 15" x 10"ish rectangle, then slice in half, rolling each half into a 12" x 12" circle, and draping one over a tart pan. Freeze the other half - it'll keep for 3 months.
  • Preheat oven to 400F, then quarter pears and slice finely length-wise.
  • Bring a small sauce-pot up to medium high, then whisk together butter and 2 Tbs Creme Brûlée Cane Sugar, cooking for 3-4 minutes.
  • Arrange splayed pear slices on top of crust, then drizzle over butter sauce, lemon juice, and sprinkle on the remainder of the Creme Brûlée Cane Sugar.
  • Whisk egg, then brush around edges of your tart.
  • Cook for 25-30 minutes, or until well browned but not burned.
  • Allow the tart to cool for 5 minutes, serve with vanilla ice cream, and devour.
