Bartlett pear and lavender are in abundance and they make a heavenly tart! This is a very lovely summer recipe, absolutely divine by itself, though lovelier with a shot of espresso, a cup of earl grey tea, a glass of pinot noir wine, or lemon gelato.
1.        3 large Bartlett pears
2.       3/4 cup heavy cream  
4.      1 1/2 cup spelt pastry flour
5.       1 1/4 stick sweet butter
6.      5 Tbsp. sugar
7.       1 Tsp. Meyer lemon zest
8.    1/2 Tsp. Meyer lemon juice
8.      1/4 Tsp. organic culinary lavender petals (finely chopped) 
9.      1/4 Tsp. organic culinary lavender petals to sprinkle on the bottom of the pan 

1.        Preheat oven to 400 F  
2.       Melt 1 stick of sweet butter and let it cool for 10 minutes
3.       In a bowl, mix spelt pastry flour, 3 Tbsp. sugar, 1/4 Tsp. finely chopped organic culinary lavender, Meyer lemon zest, juice and cooled butter. Stir gently and put aside.
5.       Use some of the 1/4 butter left to cover a tart or cheesecake pan, sprinkle the remaining 2 Tbsp. sugar and 1/4 lavender petals. 
6.      Wash the pears, cut in half, removes the center and thinly slice. Arrange the pears on the bottom of the pan, like pic 1.
7              7.      Cut the remaining of the 1/4 butter into small pieces and scatter over the pears, pic. 1
8.      Pour the wet ingredients over the pear (pic 2.) and bake for about 15-18 minutes. Once the top is a lightly golden (Pic.3), remove from oven and let it cool for 15 minutes.
10.    Use a soft knife to separate the tart from the pan and flip it over on a dish, like Pic 4.
