Pear Tarte Tatin
- ½ cup sugar, divided
- 3 tablespoons butter, divided
- 4 ripe peeled Anjou pears, cored and halved lengthwise
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 1 sheet frozen phyllo dough, thawed
- Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
- Coat a 10-inch cast iron skillet with 1 ½ tablespoons butter. Sprinkle 6 tablespoons sugar into the pan. Arrange 7 pear halves, cut side up, in a circle around the edge of the pan. Place the remaining pear half in the center. Cover the skillet and place over medium-low heat. Cook, without stirring, for 15 minutes. Place the pan in the oven and bake for 5 minutes.
- Place 1 ½ teaspoons butter and oil in a bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds, or until the butter melts. Lay 1 phyllo sheet horizontally on a flat work surface. Brush lightly with the butter mixture. Sprinkle 2 teaspoons sugar evenly over the phyllo. Place another phyllo sheet vertically on top of first. Repeat the procedure twice with the rest of the butter mixture, sugar, and phyllo. Fold the edges to form a 9-inch circle.
- Place the phyllo circle in the pan over the pears, pressing gently. Bake at 400 degrees for 16 minutes until the filling is bubbly and the crust is browned. Remove from the oven and allow to stand for 5 minutes. Place a plate upside down on top of pan, invert the tart, and serve!
