Spiced pumpkin pear tart recipe needed

I need the recipe for this spiced pumpkin pear tart. I have the ingredient list - with some quantities - but no instructions. I think it's from Gourmet or Bon Appetit, probably from the 1990s, but it's not anywhere online. Hope me, Metafilter.

Here is the list of ingredients:
flour, sugar, salt
2 sticks unsalted butter
2 egg (yolks) and 2 large eggs
vanilla, cold water
1 16-oz can solid pack pumpkin
1/4 cup whipping cream
ground ginger, coriander, nutmeg, cinnamon
1 lemon or some lemon juice
2 tablespoons brandy
The crystallized ginger is in the crust, and the pears are arranged on top in a spiral and brushed with the jam and brandy. I am looking for the exact recipe I have lost: no substitutes, please.
This was a family recipe and I really want to recreate it. Thank you so much.
