This is a very special recipe as it’s from a person very dear to me…Erika, our lifelong Brazilian nanny. She loved cooking deserts and she made lots with my children…some with more success than others! One day she came over for tea to introduce us to her fiancé, now husband, and brings me a pear tart that I eyed dubiously and with suspect…nothing more wrong!! It was the most delicious pear tart that I have ever eaten in my life! Try it to believe it!
