The holidays bring all sorts of pies to the table – pumpkin, pecan, apple, cherry – and I am a fan of each one of them!

Pear Pie With Caramel Sauce

Yield: 8 servings

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 55 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 package refrigerated pie crust, softened
  • 6 cups thinly sliced peeled baking pears, such as Bosc or Bartlett (about 6 medium)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Caramel Dip (optional)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425F. Place 1 pie crust in ungreased 9-inch glass pie plate. Press firmly against side and bottom.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine pears, sugars, flour, lemon juice and cinnamon, mixing well. Spoon pear mixture into crust-lined pie plate. With remaining dough, cut into strips and arrange in a lattice pattern. Bake 40 minutes or until edges are golden browned. Cover with 2- to 3-inches wide strips of foil after first 15 to 20 minutes of baking to prevent excess browning. Cool on rack at least 1 hour before serving. Microwave caramel dip according to package directions and serve with pie, if desired.
