A Rustic Pear Tart

Pies don't always have to be fancy with fluted edges and vented tops.  They taste just as good when thrown together as a rustic tart.  I had some very ripe pears that needed to be used so I grabbed some frozen pieces of dough that were left over from the last pie I made and made this tart for my husband.
 I just rolled out the dough (you can use store bought for an even easier dessert) and sliced up 2 pears.  I laid them on the dough and sprinkled them with cinnamon sugar, chopped walnuts and dotted it with a bit of butter.

 Just turn the edges upward and bake it at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes. Sprinkle it lightly with confectioners sugar after it cools.

It must have been good because he ate the entire tart in one sitting.
