I'm super excited about this post for two very good reasons. The first reason I'm very excited is due to the fact that this is my first challenge as a TwD member. I am so happy to be a part of this baking world I didn't know was out there. My passion has always been baking but I never thought that food blogs, forums, and baking groups even existed. The second reason for my excitement is that this challenge was picked by Dorie Greenspan herself! I really tried my best at creating this delicious recipe. I think its one of the best deserts I have tasted yet. I know that I will probably be thinking the same for every recipe since sweets are my thing.
I had a really fun time trying out this recipe and was happy with the outcome. I will be honest and say that I really wanted it to look better.. but the flavor just didn't disappoint. I loved the texture of the crust, it was so soft. And I really enjoyed the almond flavor with the pears. I glazed it with the apple jelly and it was delicious! I still can't get over the crust's chewy texture with the almond cream.. its was simply the best. Well... I hope you'll enjoy the pics!!
