  • 1. Prepare Single-Crust Pastry; set aside.
  • 2. For vanilla cream, in a heavy medium saucepan combine sugar and 2 tablespoons cornstarch. Stir in milk. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture is thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 2 minutes more. Remove from heat. Gradually stir about 1 cup of the hot mixture into beaten eggs.
  • 3. Return all of the egg mixture to the saucepan. Stir in the ginger. Cook and stir until bubbly. Reduce heat. Cook and stir for 2 minutes more. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla. Pour vanilla cream into baked tart shell. Cover and chill until ready to assemble.
  • 4. Meanwhile, for glaze, in a small saucepan combine the pear nectar and 1-1/2 teaspoons cornstarch. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 2 minutes more. Remove from heat. Cover and cool to room temperature.
  • 5. To assemble tart, peel, core, and thinly slice the pears. Arrange in a concentric pattern over the vanilla cream. Pour cooled glaze over pears, spreading evenly. Cover and chill 1 to 4 hours. To serve, top with berries. Makes 10 servings.
  • Single-Crust Pastry In a medium mixing bowl stir together 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Combine 1/4 cup skim milk and 3 tablespoons cooking oil. Add oil mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir with a fork until dough forms. Form dough into a ball.
  • On a lightly floured surface, flatten the ball of dough with hands. Roll dough from center to the edge, forming a circle about 13 inches in diameter. Ease pastry into an 11-inch tart pan with removable bottom, being careful not to stretch the pastry. Trim pastry to the edge of the tart pan. Prick the bottom, sides, and corners of pastry generously with the tines of a fork. Bake in a 450 degree F oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until pastry is golden. Cool in pan on a wire rack.
