For the dough of the tart pears and chocolate, we start preparing the dough for the base of the tart: put the flour on the work surface, cold butter, diced, a pinch of cinnamon and a generous pinch of salt. Mix with your fingertips until the mixture is a large crumbs. Add vinegar and plenty of water as much as you need to get a consistent, smooth dough. Pour the water flush and knead and put no more unless absolutely essential, because the amount of water required varies with the flour used. Once you got your dough, wrap it in food film and store it in the refrigerator for at least an hour.
While the dough for the tart of pears and chocolate rests in the refrigerator, prepare the stuffing: Wash pears, Peel, cut-and-half and eliminate the central part and the seeds. Cut pears in not too small pieces. Melt the butter in a pan, join the pears cut into pieces and cinnamon and fry over high heat. When the pears are golden, add sugar and cook covered for 10 minutes. Finally, Dissolve the cornstarch in lemon juice and add this mixture to the pears. Mix carefully and continue cooking for another two minutes or until the possible cooking liquid of the peres has thickened. Put the pears in a bowl and let cool.
The pears are cold, grease and flour the cake tin, spread the tart dough on the work top in a thin pastry and coat the bottom and sides of the cake maker with dough. Prick the bottom with a fork and pour half of pears. Coarsely chop the chocolate and spread it over the pears. Cover with the remaining pears.

If you prefer to cover the pie with a puff smooth, spread out the rest of the thin dough, rest it on the surface of the tart and tuck the flaps inside to seal them. Mix a yolk with two tablespoons of whole milk and brush with this mixture the entire surface of the tart.
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and, When it is hot, Bake the tart for 45-50 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool tart pears and chocolate: this tart is very good both lukewarm both cold.
