Today's recipe is a nice quiche, some’ especially because it combines fruit and cheese: Spelled tart with pears, walnuts and gorgonzola. The combination of fruit-cheese, and specifically what pear-gorgonzola, It has become a classic. To prepare this tasty rustic tart with pears and gorgonzola (which is good when it's warm, but even when it is cold and is perfect for a buffet or an aperitif), I used spelled flour. This flour can give more perfumes and even a touch wheel and crisp in the mouth. I also used walnuts and a drizzle of honey on the surface after cooking. For the shortcrust pastry, If you prefer, you can use a simple flour “00” (the dough will be more elastic and easier to work with). Or, you can add a percentage of rye or whole wheat instead of barley flour. You can also use the pastry crust ready or you can prepare a pastry with pear and gorgonzola, always using the puff pastry. In fact, This type of quiche did not even need a pan: It lies directly on baking paper, It is stuffing and fold the edges towards the interior. As easy as that. You can customize as you like the filling of this rustic pie, incredibly easy to prepare, by varying the type of fruit or cheese. I used a bit’ Dop sweet gorgonzola cheese and a little’ Spicy Gorgonzola Dop. But if you love the softer flavors, then pears go perfectly well with the cheese Taleggio Dop. For the recipe of tart with pears and blue cheese I freely inspired by a pie tarts rustic book published by Bibliotheca Culinaria. Have a good day!
