Caramelized Pear Tart

Grr, it has been too long since last post. (For me) Waaaaay back in Thanksgiving I made a Caramelized Vanilla & Cinnamon Pear Tart. So very yummy. I toned down the cinnamon and added almond extract. Initially purchase and thaw puff pastry. Place one sheet on the bottom of your pan and re-freeze. If you're doing this the day before keep it covered.
Than, you take butter and melt it down with vanilla bean, cinnamon stick and cloves. Add sugar (which is supposed to melt, but never has for me) and than caramelize the pears for longer than you think you should.
The filling has the same ingredients except for a little flour, and an egg. Once you're ready and the oven is preheated add the filling to puff pastry and place pears round side up. You are supposed to peal the pear but Casey's and mine's sake there was no need. A month later for a Christmas Potluck dinner I did peel them for appearances sake.
This recipe stolen from Bon Appetite.
