Hey....hope everyone is having  a wonderful week. I wanted to share this easy and delish tart with you, so wonderful for festivities this time of year. The "rustic", simplicity of this tart makes it so easy...no perfect edges makes it wonderful, and fast. Due to the smell of the apples and pears while baking, this is a wonderful tart to have baking while entertaining. I bake it on a glass pie pan lined with parchment paper so if I want to freeze it, all I have to do is slide it back onto baking dish & the parchment paper helps with browning. Anyway, it's so pretty it looks like you worked really hard preparing it, we all like that! I hope you are enjoying this time of year with your family and friends!
"Blessed Cooking from Our Home to Yours"

1 frozen pie crust (thawed)
2-3 granny smith apples (peeled and roughly chopped)
3 pears (peeled and roughly chopped)
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 c brown sugar
1 cup instant cooking oats
1/2 fresh lemon
3 tablespoons butter
1 egg (egg wash on sides)

Preheat oven to 350*. Line a round glass pie pan with parchment paper. Fold out pie crust onto pan. Mix together chopped apples and pears. (while chopping, drizzle lemon juice/ tablespoon of your white sugar over fruit to prevent browning). Add rest of sugar, brown sugar and cooking oats and mix well. Fold into pie crust and top with butter, cut into small pieces. Fold up sides of pie crust and pinch at random for a "rustic look"....imperfection is best....brush sides of pie crust with egg wash and sprinkle Kosher salt on sides of pie crust if desired. Bake for about 35-45 minutes (ovens vary)
Serve on a decorative platter and top with vanilla ice cream if desired. Enjoy!
