Old-Fashioned Almond cream Pear Tarts (Receta antigua de tartas con peras)

This is an old French recipe of those that I have saved and when the meeting say aww I want to do this.
And just only have 4 ripe pears and even has a bit of work, really worth!
From me for you!

Adapted from  fraise-basilic.com

The summer-flower has run to seed,
And yellow is the wodland bough;
And every leaf of blush and weed
Is tipt with autumn's pencil now.

And I do love the varied hue,
And  I do love the browning plain;
And I do love each scene to view,
That's mark´d with beauties of her reign.

John Clare (from the Village Minstrel, 1821)
