My good friend is very fond of pears and I thought I'd bake a pear pie for her birthday. It turned out quite well.

How to Make Gingered Pear Pie


  • 1In large bowl, combine first 10 ingredients (up to the pears)
  • 2Add peeled, sliced pears and toss to coat.
  • 3Line a 9 inch pie plate with one crust. Add pear filling. With wet fingers, moisten outer edge of crust with water.
  • 4Roll out 2nd crust. Using a sharp knife, cut steam vents in the top crust and place over the pie filling. Cut off excess dough and fold the top crust over the bottm edges and flute to finish the edge and to seal the crusts together.
  • 5Brush milk over the top crust and sprinkle the sugar over the wet surface.
  • 6Place pie on a baking sheet and place into a 400 degree oven for 50-60 minutes, until crust is golden brown. Place foil over the edge of crust if it begins to get too brown before pie is fully cooked. Filling should be bubbly. Remove pie from oven and cool well on wire rack. Serve plain or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
