This impressive dessert is a hit at my house. It's fast, easy and delicious! An apricot jam glaze lends a pretty sheen to the buttery pastry that envelopes tender apple and pear slices. —Jennifer Richards, Pine Beach, New Jersey

Very easy! Every time I make this my guests just rave about it. The crust is perfect and cardamom is a nice change of pace. I usually pop it back in the oven for a couple minutes after spreading with the jam. It caramelizes and looks prettier, I think.

We loved this so much last Fall I looked and looked and looked for the issue it was in and then realized all I had to do was go to the website! This tart screams Fall and being a WI transplant in the SF Bay area it brings a feeling of Fall I have missed the last several years. It's delicious!

This is a great crust, very flaky. I had trouble with the crust leaking the cinnamon mixture was mostly on the parchment surrounding the tart. Any suggestions?
