Late last week, my family came over in celebration on my moms birthday. It was my very first time planning a legitimate, grown-up, sit down dinner party for a decent number of people and I’m happy to say that it went off without a hitch. Though the main course is naturally important, if you ask me, dessert is always the star of the show, and with that the pressure was on. I wanted to present something classic and sophisticated, preferably individually portioned for quick and easy delivery and (even quicker clean up). In came this recipe for pear and cinnamon frangipane tartlets. The results were as delicious as they are beautiful, and it’s safe to say that my mom was one very happy lady.
