We enjoy this so much, it was gone in one sitting.

We had to cut half slices, so everyone could get a second piece.

Serve with your favorite whipped cream. I have a Ginger Whipped Cream recipe you may enjoy, as well.

How to Make "Prickly Pear and Peach" Walnut Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Prepare this ahead of time.

    Sugar and Spice Pie Crust
  2. To prepare a prickly pear, either sand the outside of the pear or if you bought it in the grocery store, they already do this. I do not, so I run the risk of getting little thorns in my hand. You can wear a glove also, but I do not.
  3. Cut the top and bottom of the pear and make an incision along the side, about a quarter if an inch deep. Peel off skin.
  4. Dice fruit. You may remove seeds, but they are edible. It will greatly reduce your amount of fruit, but I prefer to do so. It is not necessary.
  5. In a mixing bowl, mix all the fruit ingredients in a bowl. Set aside for 20 minutes, allow the fruit to macerate and the flavors to marry.
  6. In a separate mixing bowl, add all the walnut ingredients, stir well.
  7. In a greased pie dish, place the bottom of your crust. Then dump in all the fruit filling. Spread evenly. Top with the walnut layer.
  8. Place the top of your crust on. Paint the exposed crust with egg white and sprinkle on additional turbinado sugar. I also did a Mickey Mouse motif and added orange sugar for the fall.
  9. Cover entire pie with tin foil. Place in a a 350F oven for 30 minutes. Then remove foil and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, until a nice golden brown pit crust is accomplished.
