A wonderful custard type pie. The recipe was given to me by a friend when I had a bumper yield of pears from the tree in our yard. It's a favorite even when I have to buy the pears.
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust
- 3 eggs
- 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 teaspoon almond extract
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- 3 pears - peeled, cored and sliced
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C.)
In a large bowl, combine eggs, flour, sugar, almond extract and melted butter. Pour into unbaked pie crust. Arrange sliced pears in spokes radiating from center.
Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, then reduce temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and bake for 25 to 35 minutes, or until custard is firm. Cool completely before serving.
Baking pie is a rather straightforward technique, but a few tips can only help to make your pies come out looking and tasting perfect!
