Creamy Pear Pie with Caramel Sauce

Pat Duran


If you are looking for something a little different for a pie recipe- this pie should be on you menu! Bartlett Pears are the best for this recipe, but Anjou work well also.The little hint of ginger in the crust just gives this pie that special kick.
The eggnog with the pears is just another touch of elegance!
