Upside Down Pear and Almond Cakes

Upside Down Pear and Almond Cakes

Pears are a wonderful fruit to bake with because they become tender very quickly and get even sweeter when they spend some time in the oven.

Swedish Toscas (Mini Almond Tarts)

Swedish Tosca, minus one bite

There is something very appealing about a miniature tart. It’s so much fancier looking than an ordinary cookie and seems to promise more in the flavor department, while at the same time its small size lets you indulge yourself in a bite or two without guilt.
