Dessert: Pear Tart w/Almond Crust and Coconut Milk Ice Cream

This Paleo-friendly tart was an experiment I tried while attempting to satisfy our sweet teeth this week. My cousin, Jenny, has a weakness for pie and being that we are all in full-fledged Paleo mode, I thought it only right to at least attempt to recreate something she is so craving. The tart dough was made using almond flour/meal, pureed dates, water, egg, lemon zest, and vanilla. The filling is pears, lemon juice, and cinnamon. The ice cream is made with coconut milk, vanilla, and egg yolk. And, last but not least, the sauce is reduced fresh squeezed orange juice, pears, and cinnamon.
