• I am not a cook so I am going to ask what might be a stupid question: can you substitute peaches for apples in this? One recipe. Two deserts. 🙂

    • OK I just answered my own question. I did not read that last note carefully enough. Duh…

      • HA, HA. I do exactly the same thing. It does pay to read it all the way through, huh… LOL

    • The answer is yes. 🙂

  • You had me until Bosc. For me, it’s Bartlett or nothing, but I know they would suck in a pie.

    • Hi Mike, I love Bosc pears in this recipe. When it comes to cooking pears, Bosc holds up much better the Bartlett’s. However, Bartlett’s are my favorite eating pear. 🙂

  • HB

    OK, I’m definitely in on this now. I would love to win one of this. Subscribed, liked and followed. Comments to come. BTW: Love this recipe.

    • Hi HB, Way cool. I wish you the very best of luck with this. 🙂

  • A.K. Andrew

    Yum! Sounds delicious & so easy. My kind if baking 🙂

    • Hi A.K., Thanks, it really is and it is mine too… LOL

  • Yummy it looks awesome

    • Hi Jo-Anne, That it is, if I don’t say so myself. 🙂

  • Bethany Lee

    you know, I have never used the pillsbury pie crusts. I always make my own. I wonder if using these would get me to make pies, or tarts, more often. 🙂 This looks very tasty, too!

    • Hi Bethany, You can use both homemade or prepared with this recipe. The Pillsbury pie crust with the butter works very well. When you don’t have the time to make your own. :-)_

  • Elizabeth Scott

    I can not wait to try this. I have been to Apple Hill and love cooking with apples. I will have to try it.

    • Hi elizabeth, Apple Hill is the best. I am sorry I wasn’t able to make it this year. When you make this, let me know what you think. 🙂

  • Catarina Alexon

    Wow Susan that sounds fantastic! Will hae to try it for sure!!

    • Hi Catarina, Its fun to make too. Let me know what you think when you make one of these. 🙂

  • I would not have thought of combining apples and pears. The recipe looks delicious Susan

    • Hi Susan, It is a match made in heaven. I love the combination. 🙂

  • Susan — the recipe looks yummy. As soon as I see a recipe that says “roll the pie crust” I’m outta here. I’ve never been good at baking pies with crusts. Cakes and cheesecakes, yes. I buy my pies!

    • Hi Jeannette, This might be to one for you. It’s pretty full proof… LOL. BTW: I haven’t forgotten your cheese cake recipe. That is coming after the first of the year for a Valentine’s Day treat.

  • Jon Jefferson

    I have been thinking of making this style of tart for a little while now. I am thinking maybe a little goat cheese would go quite well in the mix as well.

    • Hi Jon, It is a fun and easy recipe to make. I think you’ve got something there with the goat cheese addition. 🙂

  • Lubna

    I wish I could fly over and share this apple pie with you, you wouldn’t mind sharing a slice would you? 🙂

    • Hi Lubna, Me too, and I would LOVE to share a slice with you. 🙂

  • Gina Baker

    Where is the ice cream? 🙂 My husband especially would love it. 🙂

    • Hi Gina, I didn’t have any ice cream on hand for picture… Sigh! I think he would. It is one of our household favorites. 🙂

  • Grace

    This looks delicious, and healthy!!

    • Hi Grace, It is that. Thanks for stopping by. 🙂

  • Lisa J. Jackson

    This looks like a recipe I can follow (I’m terrible in the kitchen). But I already use the pie crusts for the one thing I *can* bake, apple pie, and I also use Granny Smiths, so, yeah, I think there’s a good chance I can make this tart – and have it be edible! thanks 🙂

    • Hi Lisa, Yeah!!! It’s super easy and I always love the fact that everyone thinks I slaved over it. Have fun with it and let me know how it went. 🙂

  • Margaret Duarte

    Yum, Susan. I’ll give it a try.

    • Hi Margaret, Cool, let me know how it turns out. 🙂

  • Kelly Wade

    Yum! I think mixing up a regular apple bake with some pears thrown in would make it an extra delicious dessert. This seems like a perfect dish to have at a Christmas gathering. Thanks for sharing the recipe (and the hint about not skipping brushing the butter).

    • Hi Kelly, I love this recipe because I can throw it together in a flash and it is always a big hit when I do. Enjoy. 🙂

  • Yum. Maybe I can convince hubby to give this one a try. I do so love the fruits of his labor 😉

    • Hi Jeri, That would be cool if he did try this recipe. My husband is a very good cook in his own right and I too enjoy his creations. 🙂

  • Yum. I used to make pies, but my pie-loving child left for college this fall and my other two prefer cookies or cake. Maybe I’ll make a pie when he comes home for winter break … Maybe my other kids would like it if it’s a tart? Doubtful.

    • Hi Leora, It’s funny how that works. One of my kids loves and makes pies too, while the other not so much. Chocolate fudge is her thing . So the solution has always been to make both… LOL. Not that I need the calories or anything mind you. D

  • Yum. I used to make pies, but my pie-loving child left for college this fall and my other two prefer cookies or cake. Maybe I’ll make a pie when he comes home for winter break … Maybe my other kids would like it if it’s a tart? Doubtful.

  • This looks So good! I pinned it. Something I must try. Yummy! Love the pear addition to it too. Sounds heavenly! 🙂

    • Hi Sarah, I believe this recipe has your name written all over it. :-), When you make it, I know you will… LOL, let me know what you think. 🙂

  • I love the rustic-style tarts, and I also love that you used pears with the apples. Pies are a little more interesting when you use more than 1 flavor, right?

    • Hi Donna, Thank you, I absolutely agree with you. To me, the combination is a marriage made in heaven. 🙂

  • Maribel Reyes

    Oh my goodness this looks absolutely delicious! Perfect for a cold fall night.

    • Hi Maribel, It is one of my favorite recipes for the very reason you mentioned. Enjoy. 🙂

  • Stephanie Ruby Feldman

    I love doing this! A regular in our house!

  • This would be PERFECT with vanilla bean ice cream. And I like the idea of adding the pear with the apples.

    • Hi Krisha, This is one of my favorite combos. A good vanilla bean ice cream with this is just as you said, a perfect combo. 🙂

  • John Barton

    Hi Susan Looks like the perfect recipe for success! Janet says so! Great to keep in touch – I am easing off over Christmas – wish you and yours all the best for the upcoming Festive Season.

    • Hi John, Janet would know… LOL. Have the best of holidays my friend.

  • Jacqueline Cheung

    I just realized I’ve never actually had a dessert with pears AND apples in it.

    • Hi Jacqueline, Oh, then you must give this a try. It will make you a convert. 🙂
