Directions

  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.
  5. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

I liked this pie. However, I followed the recipe of one of the reviewers. I also used 1/3 C butter and 1/3 C sugar and I also used 6 pears. When I make it again I will add cinnamin to the custard to add a little more flavor. I did sprinkle cinnamin and sugar on the top of the pie once it came out of the oven. that added a little more flavor. My husband LOVED it!

This recipe reminds me of one my grandma gave me that has rhubarb in it, I love the custard. I wanted to use up some pears and this really worked. I used 6 pears instead of 2, used a deep dish pie pan, and a pillsbury pie crust. I also added one egg,to make 3 total changed the sugar to 1/3, the butter to 1/3 and added a dash of salt. It turned out so beautiful, and it used up more fruit. Thanks for a recipe I will use again and again!

This is a fantastic recipe. I used brown sugar in the custard and it had a rich, delicious color and flavor. Sprinkle the tops with a little cinnamon/brown sugar and add ground nutmeg to the pears. Delicious!
