Amanda's peach tart

I believe this may have been asked before, but I am having trouble getting to the recipe: If I substitute either pears or apples for the peaches in the tart, should I saute the fruit first? bake it for longer? If I should bake it longer than called for, how much longer?

I made it with pears and I didn't saute the fruit first. It may have taken a little longer, but only 5 minutes or so. My pears were really soft. I'd probably saute apples first if I were going to make it with apples.

I've also made it with pears, three different times (varying stages of ripeness) and have always just followed the original directions, including Amanda's note about an extra T of flour for riper fruit. The only changes I've made were with the spices - I've added ground cardamom and ginger...Delicious!

Thanks all, and thanks Amanda for the link. It worked, but I've been getting the chocolate baguette a lot lately. I think I am going to go for the pears, though I have frozen blueberries so considering that too.

Yes, too many chocolate baguettes all around. It's a bug and we're working on it but it's like whack-a-mole.

Understandable. Thanks again!
