So I got the cookbook Vegan with a Vengeance (woohoo bookstore giftcards!) and have already used it. My grandparents were coming over for dinner and I wanted to make a dessert. We had some marked down pears that no one wanted to eat on their own so I through them into a tart and it was delicious. And I'm not really even a pie person. I was even told someone preferred it to my grandma's tropical cheesecake. That says a lot. She's a dessert master.
Personally the almond extract flavor was what set it apart. Anyway, here is an ugly photo of it.
