Sugar and Spice Pear Pie Recipe

My family loves pear pie because it's a little less tart than apple pie. The nutty crust complements the tender fruit and buttery pastry.—Kristina Pontier, Hillsboro, Oregon
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + standing Bake: 40 min. + cooling YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 5 large pears, peeled and sliced
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons quick-cooking tapioca
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon peel
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon minced fresh gingerroot
  • Pastry for double-crust pie (9 inches)
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter

Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 400°. In a large bowl, combine first nine ingredients. Let stand 15 minutes.
  • 2. Line a 9-in. pie plate with bottom crust; trim pastry even with edge. Sprinkle with pecans and brown sugar; fill with pear mixture. Dot with butter. Roll out remaining pastry to fit top of pie; place over filling. Trim, seal and flute edges. Cut slits in pastry.
  • 3. Bake 40-45 minutes or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Cover edges with foil during the last 15 minutes to prevent overbrowning if necessary. Cool on a wire rack. Yield: 8 servings.
