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.
