delicious pear pie.

pear pie

I was given some pears for christmas, so after I used them for the table centerpiece, I thought I'd make them into a pie. I'd never made a pear pie before, so I didn't know what to expect. It was custardy and not too sweet. I'll definitely be making this one again.


1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust
3 or 4 pears - peeled, cored and cut in half
3/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs, beaten


1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. Press the pie pastry into the bottom and up the sides of a 9 inch pie plate. Flute the edges. Place the pear halves cut side down in the pie crust with the small ends toward the center.
3. In a medium bowl, mix the butter and sugar together until smooth, then beat in the eggs one at a time until light and fluffy. Stir in flour and vanilla. Pour over the top of the pears.
4. Bake for 1 hour in the preheated oven, until pears are soft and custard is set in the center. Cool completely before slicing and serving.

  4. So three months ago I was visiting my boyfriend in Brighton, Boston. There was a cute mom&pop vegetable and fruit store. During my peruse of the shop I found a 1 $ rack with expiring produce. I picked up this bag of 8-9 pears that were perfectly ripe. My boyfriend did not have a recipe book, so I googled for a recipe. This was the first one and I must say this was the best pear dessert I've ever had. Not only did we make two deliciously awesome pies for a buck, I found this amazing blog. I love your pictures and recipes Hannah. You made a fan for life :)
