Fresh Pear Pie
One of my friends gave me a lot of pears. I baked a pear pie and it was my first time to cook this recipe and surprisingly it turned out good. Hubby was the first one to eat a slice of it then I sliced one for myself. Hmmm...it was so good!!! Hubby requested another slice and also I got another one for myself. After tasting the outcome of my pear pie, I plan to cook it again next time. Here is the recipe for the
Fresh Pear Pie:
1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie
1/2 cup white sugar (I used brown sugar instead)
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon lemon zest
5 cups peeled and sliced pears
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1. Combine sugar, flour, salt, cinnamon and lemon rind in a mixing bowl.
2. Arrange pears in layers in a 9 inch lined pan, sprinkling sugar mixture over each layer. Dot with butter. Sprinkle with lemon juice. Roll out remaining dough; cut slits for escape of steam. Moisten rim of bottom crust, pressing to seal. Flute edge.
3. Bake at 450 degrees F for 10 minutes. reduce temperature to 350 degrees F and bake for an addtional 35 to 40 minutes.
