  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons cold butter, cut up
  • 1½ tablespoons light sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 4 to 5 tablespoons ice water
  • 1½ cups frozen light whipped topping, thawed
  • 3 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1 medium Bartlett pear
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons roasted and salted pistachio nuts, coarsely chopped


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. In a medium bowl stir together flour, sugar and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Add sour cream and oil; toss with a fork to combine. Gradually sprinkle with enough of the ice water to moisten, tossing gently. Gather pastry into a ball, kneading gently just until it holds together (pastry may appear crumbly). Form into a rectangle. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill 1 hour.
  2. Roll pastry between two sheets of waxed paper into a 16x7-inch rectangle, lightly flouring pastry as needed to roll easily. Transfer to a 14x4½-inch tart pan with a removable bottom. Press pastry into fluted side and trim edge. Prick bottom of pastry with a fork. Line pastry with a double thickness of foil. Bake 8 minutes; remove foil. Bake 6 to 8 minutes more or until dry and golden. Cool on a wire rack.
  3. In a small bowl combine whipped topping and chocolate. Microwave 30 to 45 seconds or until melted and smooth, stirring once or twice. Spread in tart shell; let stand 15 minutes.
  4. Slice pear and toss with lemon juice. Arrange pear slices on chocolate mixture. Drizzle with honey and sprinkle with pistachios. Chill 1 hour or until chocolate mixture is set.
