This dessert comes from my friend Louise, who recently made five of these tarts for a dinner party of 40—they're that easy to make. You can use fresh Bosc pears if they are in season, but the dish turns out just as well with canned pears.
- Defrost pastry according to package directions (about 20 minutes). Preheat oven to 425°F. Heat butter in oven-proof sauté pan (cast iron works beautifully). Over medium heat, cook pears on both sides until well-browned, 12-15 minutes. Turn pear halves cut-side up.
- Sprinkle sugar onto pears and continue browning, turning once or twice, until caramelized, 2 minutes. Pour in milk, which stops caramelization, and remove from heat.
- Place puff pastry on top of pears. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°F and bake 20 minutes longer. Serve tart topped with vanilla frozen yogurt.
