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.

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