Crescent Rolls Pear Tart with Goat Cheese

Crescent Rolls Pear Tart with Goat Cheese, Walnuts & Honey

Is it just me or does this time-change throw everybody off? Especially the kids! My Gosh, I can’t catch a break! The baby wants to go to sleep at 6 p.m., then she’s up at 4 a.m. singing goo goo gah gah in bed…and baby girl is loud. Because of her singing, the 3-year old wakes up, and then it’s a party in the kitchen hours before the rest of the country has brushed their teeth.

The other morning, while the baby was singing in her crib and Ana was jumping, I was in the kitchen fixing lunch for the hubs before he went to work, and this Crescent Rolls Pear Tart for brunch with a friend. She and I both take our kids to preschool in the morning and sometimes we go grab a cup of coffee for the 2 hours that they are in school. But, this time around I invited her to come by our house for coffee and dessert.

This Pear Dessert Recipe Is Quick And Easy To Make

At first I was going to make some cookies, but then I thought that’s too predictable; lets do something different. I opened up the pantry, the fridge, scanned the fruit bowl, and after a little process of elimination, I whipped up this delicious tart that took me minutes to put together. There wasn’t a crust to make, nor to roll, and baking time was long enough to change the baby’s diaper and brush Ana’s hair. Ding! It was done!

I took Ana to school, my friend came by, we ate half the tart, picked up the kids, and play time was over. Back to reality.

    This tart looks delicious and love the goat cheese and how you made this easy by using the crescent roll dough.

    It’s been a couple of weeks since the time change here in Europe and I still feel off. Your tart looks amazing! I love pears with goat cheese and nuts. I make something similar but love your easier use of crescent roll crust. Thanks for sharing:)

    I am generally up very early anyway – the thing that is most difficult for me is how dark it gets now – too early!

    one of these tarts will definitely make up for that… I am going to make this very soon!

    My kids, my pets and I are all having trouble adjusting our internal clocks to the new time change. I also don’t like the darkness that settles upon us at 5pm. So sad. 🙁

    I can just imagine the chaos at 4am in your house. 🙂

    I love the combination of goat cheese with the sweet pear and cinnamon spices. Looks perfect for a yummy treat. 🙂

    Hey man, singing is better than screaming 😉 These rolls look heavenly! I adore EVERYTHING with goat cheese. So decadent and delicious!

  6. Kristy

    This looks so good!!!!! Great treat while the little ones are off at school. And I’m with you on the time change…it’s taken us a week to get ourselves readjusted.

    I’ve never used crescent rolls for anything besides making the chocolate croissant on weekend morning. So basically do not separate and use it as a dough. I’m going to try this!
