  1. To make the crust, place the all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, and salt into a food processor. Pulse once. Cut the butter into chunks and add it to the flour mixture. Process until you get a coarse mixture. Add the ice water and process just until the mixture gathers into a ball. If needed, add a little bit more icy water. Pat the dough into a disk and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  2. Peel the pears, core, and slice them. Sprinkle in the flour, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Toss until the pears are evenly coated. Set aside.
  3. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  4. Take the dough from the fridge and place it on a parchment paper. Dust the dough with flour and roll into about a 12-inch circle, adding more flour if necessary to prevent sticking. Transfer the crust to a baking sheet with parchment paper in place.
  5. Lay the pear slices on top of the crust, leaving a 1-inch border around the edge. Fold the edges of the dough over the pears. The crust will not meet in the center.
  6. Bake the tart about 45 minutes or until lightly golden. Cool for 10 minutes before serving.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
