Pear Tart with Hazelnut Dark Chocolate and Honey

We saw Joanne Weir use this technique on her show, so we just had to try it, too. We grabbed all the different kinds of pear that were at the store, peeled them, set them in a lemon water bath, then cut them, fanned them out a bit, and slid them onto the tart crust. The Wife added chocolate because 'just pears looked boring.' Here is her supereasy, made-from-memory crust recipe:
Basic Tart Crust:

1 1/2 cup flour
1 pinch salt
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
3 tbsp. raw sugar
3 tbsp. butter, cut into small bits

Mix ingredients listed above. Make a well and add 1/2 to 1 cup ice water, stirring until it just comes together. If you have time, chill it for an hour. Roll it out and fill your tart.
