  • 3 inch tart pan


For the crust

  • 1/4 cup butter soften
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 2 tsp cocoa powder
  • 30 ml milk

For the filling

  • 2 pears medium sized, in cube
  • 1/4 cup white chocolate chips
  • Some shaved dark chocolate to taste


  • Mix the butter, the flour and cocoa powder together until it is crumbly.
  • Add the milk at once and mix gently to form a bowl of dough.
    Don’t over-work it, just enough so all the crumbs are all picked up.
    Roll it (add a little bit of flour to prevent from sticking but very little) and place onto a pie plate.
  • Place the pears on top.
  • Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes at 375F.
  • Put the white chocolate chips in a ramekin with a table spoon of water and melt it in the microwave and drizzle it on your tart.
  • Allow to cool down and place the shaved chocolate for presentation


I used my veggie peeler to shave the chocolate!
