Can I Throw This Away?

He says, holding a squishy brown pear.



Pear Pie
Serves 8


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


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  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.
Feel free to add more pears that you need to get rid of. Soft pears work best. The pears can be sliced and arranged concentrically to give it a more tart look. Sprinkle the bottom of the crust with sugar before adding pears to keep it from getting soggy. This can spill over while baking so put a cookie sheet/foil under it.
