Almonds, pears, and chocolate tartlet
These tartlets are my favorites. In french pastry, we have a traditional tart called “Tarte bourdaloue” which is made with pears in syrup. In this version, I choose to use fresh pears. I also use flour with a lower glycemic index than wheat flour. If you don’t care or if you don’t have the same kind of flour as me, you can use wheat flour. (whole wheat flour would be better 😉 )
