Creamy Pear Pie

Total Time

Prep: 15 min. Bake: 55 min.

Makes

6-8 servings

There aren't many recipes using fresh pears. I heard this recipe on the radio while I was driving the tractor in the field. I kept repeating the ingredients over and over until it was time to go in the house for lunch, then I wrote the recipe down on paper. We've enjoyed it every summer since.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups sliced peeled pears
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 unbaked pie pastry (9 inches)
  • TOPPING:
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, toss pears with sugar and flour. Combine sour cream and extracts; add to pear mixture until blended. Pour into pie shell.
  2. In a small bowl, mix toppings ingredients until crumbly. Sprinkle over pears. Bake at 400° for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°; bake 45 minutes more or until the pears are tender.

    This was good. My pears weren't as sweet, so I upped the sugar a little.

    This was one of the best pies I have ever tasted. I am not partial to pie usually but this is the exception.

    I tried this with canned pears and it did not taste as good, also used veggie peeler to peel the pears worked great.

    This pie is sooo good, my whole family loves it and I will be making it many times again. The only down fall is the prep of the pears.

    I wonder whether this would work with frozen pears. Maybe I'll try it someday, adding an extra spoon of flour.
