Pear Custard Pie

serves 6

(recipe from Everyday Food: Great Food Fast)

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.

Shutterbean Notes:

-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!
