Simple fall flavors inspire this easy-to-prepare brunch tart. And having an elegant brunch on the table in less than 40 minutes makes it a recipe to keep in your repertoire. Feel free to change out ingredients—the addition of ham, for instance, would be delicious. Or, you could completely change the flavor profile by subbing out pears and Gruyère with cheddar and apples.

If you have the time or inclination to make home made puff pastry then by all means do so. If not, the freezer section of most grocery stores should have sheets will defrost on the counter in a few hours, or in the fridge overnight.
