recipe

The butter for the frangipane should be about the same firmness as the almond paste so the two combine smoothly; otherwise, you will wind up with lumps of almond paste in your frangipane. This tart is best eaten the day it's made.

recipe

The berries should look as though they have simply tumbled onto the tart, so don't be fussy when arranging them on the custard filling.

recipe

Setting a mold on top of the dough keeps it from puffing up in the oven, eliminating the need for pie weights. The ganache should be warm when poured in, in order for it to set smoothly. So work your way to step 5, and fill the tartlets with jam before making the ganache.

recipe

Any variety of firm-ripe pears works in this recipe, but Anjou will hold up especially well when poached. You will need a kitchen torch or a broiler setting on your oven to finish off the tart; the crackly sugar layer has just the right crunch over the soft fruit and creamy filling.
