Pear Pie With Caramel Sauce

Pear Pie With Caramel Sauce

Today's pie is all about pears, which is another one of my holiday favorites. This pie can also be topped with a yummy caramel sauce - yum!


  • 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


  • Preheat oven to 425F. Place 1 pie crust in ungreased 9-inch glass pie plate. Press firmly against side and bottom.
  • 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.
