Pear Frangipane Tart

I love trying out new recipes and this was a real winner! This is a recipe from Cans Get You Cooking and Allrecipes.   I probably would have never attempted a recipe that I could not pronounce the name of but I am really glad that I tried this one.  I wasn't familiar with the term frangipane and had to look it up.   So, just in case you're wondering too; Frangipane means a filling made with or flavored with almonds. And oh boy, did this really make it tasty!

I did make a few slight changes to the original recipe and I am listing my version below but the original recipe can be found here.   I only used one can of pears and I used vanilla extract instead of almond extract.   It still had plenty of almond flavor with the almond paste.  And I also added a sprinkling of cinnamon sugar.  This was so delicious and it makes a really attractive dessert that would be worthy of serving to company!
