Take advantage of the season's freshest, organic pears with this simple and delicious pear tart. For the crust, we suggest using coconut oil, which is excellent for baking and is lower in calories and fats than most oils.


For crust:

For filling:


In a food processor, combine sugar, flour, cup coconut oil and butter. While processing, slowly add 2 tablespoons ice water until dough forms. Press into an 8-inch square pan. Brush lightly with 1 beaten egg yolk and pierce several times with a fork.

Sprinkle chopped hazelnuts evenly over crust. Peel, core and slice the pears and toss with lemon zest and juice from one organic lemon. Arrange pear slices over hazelnuts. Combine sugar and cardamom and sprinkle over pears.

Bake at 350º F for 30 minutes, remove from oven and brush with fruit jelly.
