Pretty Pear Pie

I bought a bag of pears at Costco last week.  They're now all ripe, so I had to figure out what to do with the last six.  Two became this pear custard pie.  Only two, because they're huge.  I haven't tasted the pie yet, because it has to cool, but it is gorgeous.

Edited to add: This pie is delicious! The combination of pear and custard is perfect. And it is interesting that this custard has no milk in it. I used our Dominican Republic pure vanilla extract, which is really strong, but the flavours still blended nicely in this pie. If I make this in the fall, I might add cinnamon and use brown sugar instead of white.


  1. It is impressive how productive you are! You do not give yourself enough credit!

  2. Oooh, that pie looks delicious! Sounds like something I'd do with leftover fruit going ripe. :)
