Vanilla pear tart-veganFor all of you stuck inside because of the snow outside, here is something to keep you busy. Dig around your cupboards and try to find these ingredients:

2 pears
1 cup vanilla soy yogurt (approx. half a pot)
1 vegan white chocolate bar (approx. 150g)
2 tablespoons vanilla sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
1 sweet pastry tart case

(If you want to make your own follow this recipe:
Sweet Pastry Tart Case
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup caster sugar
3/4 cup vegan spread
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 tsp cider vinegar
Mix all ingredients together and form a dough. Knead the dough for a few minutes to combine everything well. Place the dough in a 10″ tart tin, and press down with your fingers. Bake at 375°F for approximately 25 minutes, or until lightly browned. )

Vanilla and Pear Tart
Melt the chocolate in the microwave and mix it together with the soy vanilla yogurt.
Peel, core and slice the pears and place them inside the pastry case.
Sprinkle the vanilla sugar and cinnamon on top of the pears.
Pour the yogurt/white chocolate mixture around the pears.
Stick in fridge overnight or for a few hours to set.
No need to bake.

Take out from fridge once set, and slice to serve.
This is probably the easiest thing you will find on Cooking With Dia. To me it tasted a bit like cheesecake or a white chocolate mousse tart. The pears were nice and juicy and just blended together well with the vanilla.

Enjoy the snow while it lasts! I will be snuggling up with my cute little dogs. Here is a new shot of me and Desdemona, my crazy border terrier who likes to destroy whatever she can get her hands on. :) Don’t let her adorable little fuzzy face fool ya!

    lol I love how you have to put dashes between omg to further emphasize it. l-o-l ! I’m not really sure I know what you mean? Are you speaking of me having to cancel yet another flight because of my stupid health problems? If so, ‘O-M-G’, yes it is annoying! I am hopefully coming in February-fingers crossed eh?
