FUN FRIDAY: Gluten Free Pear Cashew Tart Recipe

For dinner tonight I made beef stew, homemade french fries, a salad and this pear tart. I am usually exhausted on Friday night but tonight I was too busy cooking and then enjoying dinner to feel tired. I adapted this recipe from http://freshginger.org/dessert/pear-almond-tart-with-apricot-glaze/and substituted cashews for almonds. My new favorite thing is making
a homemade dessert on the weekend. It makes the weekend special and gives us something sweet to snack on.

Pear Cashew Tart

1/4 c. coconut butter or oil
1/2 c. sugar
1/4 c. ground cashews
2 eggs plus 1 egg yolk
1 tsp vanilla
2-3 pears (Bosc work well)

Cream butter and sugar together. Add ground cashews. Add eggs one at a
time. Pour into an unbaked pie crust. Cook for 1 hour at 400 degrees.
To make the glaze, mix 1/4 c. of apricot jam with 2 T. water. Bring to
a boil and then pour carefully over the tart.
