Weekend Recipe: Rustic Turkey Tart
Tasters loved the interplay of flavors among the blue cheese, pears, pecans, and cranberries in this Rustic Turkey Tart recipe from Cook's Country.
We found firm pears worked best, as soft pears were too watery and mushy. Precrumbled blue cheese tasted bland and had a dry texture. We recommend buying a chunk of blue cheese and crumbling just before using. Tart dried cranberries added sharpness and a chewy texture for contrast.
