Pear Custard Pie
(recipe from Everyday Food: Great Food Fast)
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted plus more for the pie dish
- 3 ripe but firm Comice or Bartlett pears, peeled, halved and cored
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup flour
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 3 large eggs
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- confectioner’s sugar, for dusting
Preheat oven to 350F; butter a 9 inch pie dish. Slice the pears 1/4 inch thick lengthwise. Arrange the slices, overlapping slices, in the dish.
In a blender, process the melted butter, sugar, flour, vanilla extract, eggs, milk and salt until smooth.
Pour the batter over the pears; bake until golden and firm to the touch, 40 to 45 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature, dusting with confectioner’s sugar.
-I used Comice pears for this
-I think an addition of almond extract would be SUPER in this.
-If you want to be fancy, serve with a cinnamon ice cream. Yum!
