Since Mom is coming for a few days, and since I still have some pears left, I thought I’d make a family favorite…Fresh Pear Crumble Pie. The recipe is at the end of this post.
You’ll need pastry for a single crust pie.
Preheat the oven.
You’ll also need peeled, sliced fresh pears:
Sprinkle pears with lemon juice. Okay…I forgot to do this part and it still turned out scrumptious!
Combine sugar, flour and lemon peel (fresh is better, but I didn’t have any lemons on hand).
Add pears to the mixture.
Add pear filling to the pastry:
Combine flour, sugar, cinnamon, ginger and mace. Cut in butter.
Sprinkle topping mixture over the pear filling.
Bake. The smart thing to do is cover the crust edges with foil to prevent overbrowning. But hey…I’ll take the risk.
Hubby and I couldn’t wait for Mom to get here…we dove right into that pie!
