Pear-blackberry pie (Pie de moras y peras)

I wasn't in the mood for Valentines but when I made this tart I 
cut some hearts to cover the tart and think was nice to Valentines.

BTW you can make some leaves to or use other cutter shape.
Happy Valentine's day!

Tarta de moras y peras

Aunque no andaba  muy en la onda de San Valentin decidi hacer esta tarta , lo unico que la  receta original  era con  forma de hojas y yo la hice con corazones.
Queda deliciosa. Es una mezcla de moras y peras.
Yo usé moras congeladas. Es dificil encontrar moras frescas. 
Tenia una caja de moras congeladas y fue muy bueno.
Siempre he pensado que las moras le dan un aroma especial a las tartas.



2 1/2 taza de harina sin polvos de hornear
1/2 cucharadita de sal
10 cucharadas de mantequilla helada en trozos
8 a 10  cucharadas de agua fría para la masa

Relleno de moras y peras

3 taza de moras congeladas
2/3 taza de azucar granulada
2 a 3 peras peladas y cortadas en trozos pequeños
1/4 taza de maizena
1 cucharadita canela en polvo
1 cucharadita cáscara de limon rallado
1 pizca de sal

Para barniz de masa
1 yema de huevo
