Begin by making the pastry dough.
  1. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, and salt until everything is evenly combined.
  2. Add the pieces of butter to the flour mixture and use a pastry blender or a fork to combine the butter with the flour mixture until only pea-shaped pieces of the flour/butter mixture remain.
  3. Sprinkle the cold water into the mixture and mix the ingredients until they form a smooth ball of dough.
Assemble the tarts.
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Toss together pears, apples, honey, cinnamon, sea salt, and flour in a large bowl.
  3. Remove the dough from the fridge 10 minutes before you begin working with it.
  4. Cut the dough into 4 equal pieces.
  5. On a large floured surface, roll each piece of dough into a circular shape until it is 1/8” thick.
  6. Put 1/3 cup of the pear/apple mixture into the center of each piece of dough.
  7. Carefully fold the sides in towards the center of the tart. Make any pretty design you wish to make.
Bake the Tarts
  1. Place the tarts on a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  2. Bake the tarts for 35-40 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the fruit is bubbling in the center.
  3. Once the tarts have cooled, drizzle with goats milk caramel sauce.
