Cut the pears in two and take out the centre.

Heat the butter and the honey in a pan and caramlise the pears. Dust with cinnamon.

Spread the pastry between two sheets of baking paper, and cook in a tart mould for 15 m at 200 degrees.

Add the almond cream, and the raisins and put back into the over for 40m. Once your tart is ready, add the pears and a little caramel.
