Bourbon Pear Tarts

This was so easy and I had all this laying around.  I made two tarts, but you can make one big one.  It’s up to you, if you do then adjust your filling ingredients by an extra 1/3rd.

You will need:

Pie crust  (premade is fine)

1/2 oz bourbon

1 tbsp butter

1 tbsp +1 tsp brown sugar

2 tbsp Mascarpone or cream cheese softened

1 tsp vanilla

1 Pear seeded and sliced

Toasted salted Pecans

Cut pie crust to fit mini tart pans.  Bake according to directions. Remove from oven and let cool.  Mix mascarpone, vanilla and 1 tsp brown sugar until blended, set aside.   In a large frying pan, melt butter, add 1 tbsp brown sugar and bourbon.  With a whisk stir well and add sliced pears.  Simmer on low while pairs cook and release their juices into the butter bourbon mixture, about 10 minutes.  Turn the pears over a few times.The sauce will thicken up.  Spoon the mascarpone mixture into the pie shells.  Place the pears on top in a single layer.  Spoon the bourbon glaze over the top then sprinkle with toasted pecans.
