I found this recipe that I hadn't made in awhile that I got from Taste of Home several years ago. These are so good. I usually double the recipe. I hope you enjoy them. The photo is from Taste of Home.

How to Make Pear Custard Bars

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla. Gradually add flour to creamed mixture. Stir in the nuts.
  2. Press into a greased 8-inch square baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack.
  3. In a small bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Beat in the sugar, egg and vanilla. Pour over crust.
  4. Cut pears into 18-inch slices. Arrange in a single layer over filling. Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over pears. Bake at 375 degrees for 28-30 minutes (center will be soft-set and will become firmer upon cooling). Cool on a wiere rack for 45 minutes.
  5. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before cutting. Store in the refrigerator.
