I've always felt so un-american not caring for apple pie! I LOVE pears, so one year I decided to come up with a PEAR pie! Here's my recipe, and I must say, it really is good!!! Hope you give it a try. Even if you're an apple pie lover, this is a nice treat from the norm.

How to Make My Spicy Autumn Pear Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. In large bowl, whisk/mix first 6 ingredients. In medium bowl, slice cored, peeled pears into lemon juice, tossing as you go to prevent browning. Stir pears into dry mixture well. Stir in vanilla. Pour into unbaked 9” deepdish pie shell. Dot top with butter. Cover with lattice top, or top of your choice. Tuck top edge under bottom edge, pinch/flute edge all the way around well to seal. Cut slits in top if not making a lattice top. Brush top with a little water very lightly, sprinkle top with cinnamon/sugar. Bake in 425º oven for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350º, bake 45-50 minutes longer. Watch for any excessive browning on edges, may need to cover them lightly with foil. Serve warm with Butter Pecan ice cream if desired!
    Makes a large pie.
