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.
