  Pear & Fig Tart

With figs enjoying their last hurrah of the season, and pears just starting to appear, this tart makes the most of both. Does it look fancy, taste delicious, and wow dinner guests every time? Yes. Is it also sneakily simple to prepare? Indeed.

Serves 6

What You Need:

1 9-inch tart shell, pre-baked
1 pound small ripe figs, stemmed and halved
1/2 pound ripe Bosc pears, stemmed and cut into 1/3-inch thick slices
1 teaspoon maple sugar
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon orange juice

What You Do:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Around the outer edge of the tart shell, arrange the figs in a circle, being careful not to break them. Arrange the sliced pears, overlapping them slightly, inside the circle of figs. Sprinkle with maple sugar and bake until the fruit is cooked, about 35 minutes.

2. In a small saucepan, heat maple syrup, lemon juice and orange juice. Brush the warm syrup over the fruit and serve. If feeling especially inspired, you can top the tart with a vegan whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
