"Delicious! I will certainly make it again, but I will reduce the temperature to 375 degrees as the crust was slightly burned. I will substitute almonds for the macadamia nuts and I will reduce the amount of topping -- 1/3 cup flour, 1/3 cup brown sugar and 2 1/2 Tbsp butter."

"Outstanding! I did not have a tart pan, made in a pie pan, it was still loved by the whole family :)"

"Easy to make, very attractive dessert. The crust was a little too sweet and resulted in a rich desssert. I would decrease sugar in the crust to 1/2 cup. I served it with slightly sweetened whipped cream at a potluck dinner. It was a big hit. Very satisfying dessert. Yum!"

"I did not have the pan suggested, so I made it in a 9 X 13 pan. It worked great. Next time I will increase the pears to 5 or 6 to give it a little more pear flavor."

"This was a great tart - the macadamia's add a little crunch and the pear-raspberry filling has a great spice flavor"

"YUM! I have already made this tart twice and am going to make it again soon! The only change I made was to add less raspberries so the pear flavor comes through a little more. Very delicious!"
