Here are a few of the pears in the fridge waiting for their chance to become dessert...

Then we cut the pears up into chunks. My wife placed a stick of butter in a skillet and melted it and then sauteed the pear chunks in the butter until they turned a nice golden brown color. She added 1/2 cup of sugar, stirred, and sauteed a few minutes more.

Now earlier during the day, Tricia had made up a homemade crust and baked it. It was waiting in a shallow pie pan and the sugared, buttery sauteed pears were spooned into the prepared crust.

The pear mixture perfectly filled the crust. It was warm and beckoned hungry eaters to the kitchen!

We put some whipped cream on top and watched it start to melt into the warm tart.
|Ain't that a pretty sight!|
It is a simple recipe that is simply delicious!
