Homemade Pear Pie
Total TimePrep: 40 min. + chilling Bake: 45 min. + cooling
I made only the pie crust in this recipe. It was a little too salty for my family's tastes. I would use only half of the salt when making it again. It turned out with a good texture after it was baked.
This pie was exceptionally good. Best pie I ever made, in fact! I did have problems with the pastry and had to make a second batch. It just wasn’t rolling properly. I may have needed just a little more water. The second batch was fine, although still a little finicky when rolling it. I did use an egg yolk wash when baking it. In spite of my troubles, the pastry was amazing. I did forget to add the last 2 tablespoons of sugar before I put the top crust in. Oops! But it didn’t matter.... My guests absolutely loved it - served it warm with Vanilla bean ice cream. I will definitely make this again, it was awesome!
