    Easy to make with a readymade crust this frangipane pear tart is a great dessert. I like to serve it warm with a spoonful of vanilla ice cream.

    Are you sure that it is just 50ml of milk? By the time I had boiled the milk and a teaspoon of cornflour there was no way I could 'pour' it into anything. It was solid. I opted out at this point and did another recipe.  -  20 Oct 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
