TWD: It's gonna be a tad late...

I was very excited about this week's Tuesdays with Dorie challenge -- French Pear Tart. After all, Dorie choose this week's recipe, so it must be a personal favorite. However, on Sunday when I sat down to "think" about the recipe I realized I don't have a tart pan. I have some free time after lunch tomorrow and am going to buy one. So..it's gonna be late. Sorry, everyone. You would think that the word "tart" would have been a tip off that I would need a tart pan. Ummmm....not so much. Look for it this weekend.

I didn't have a tart pan either, so I used my springform pan

I couldn't find a 9" tart pan anywhere (except online and I knew it wouldn't arrive in time). Luckily Bed, Bath and Beyond had a six pack of 4" tart pans with removable bottoms. I ended up using five for the recipe, but if I had weighed the dough and split it (rather than just winging it) I probably could have made six. I think they were $14.99 and they often have 20% off coupons.
Good luck finding your pan! The recipe is so delicious, it's definitely worth the hassle.
