Ingredients

5 c
pears, chopped (5 - 6 pears)
2 Tbsp
flour
1 Tbsp
"red" hot candies
1 Tbsp
butter
2/3 c
sugar
water (if needed to thin sauce)
2
pillsbury (refrigerator dough) pie crusts

LIME CREAM

1/2 c
heavy whipping cream
4 Tbsp
powdered sugar
juice of 1/2 lime
1/2 tsp
lime zest

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Grease a large 6 cup muffin pan or spray with oil. Flatten each pie crust with a few "rolls" on a pastry cloth to give it more width. Cut out 3 circles on each crust so you have a total of 6 circles. Fit each circle into muffin pan.
2
Mix together pears, sugar, flour, red hots, and butter in a saucepan. Cook on medium-low heat until "Red Hots" are melted; add small amount of water if needed to thin sauce. Remove from heat; pour into pie shells. Bake at 375 degrees approximately 25 - 30 minutes or until crusts have browned. Cool to room temperature.
3
Whip the cream at high speed gradually adding sugar, lime juice and zest until stiff peaks form. Chill and serve on top of pear cups.
