Description

This delicious pear pie is made with fresh pears, sweetened with maple syrup, spiced with ginger, and wrapped up in a flaky pie crust.


Ingredients

  • 1 homemade or store-bought double pie crust
  • 8 cups (1kg) fresh pears, peeled and sliced 1/4″ thick (about 89 pears) *see notes below
  • 1/3 cup (40g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup (188ml) maple syrup

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375F and position rack in lower third of oven.
  2. In a large bowl, toss together the sliced pears, flour, ginger and cinnamon. Pour in the maple syrup and gently toss again to coat. Spoon into a 9″ pie crust lined pie plate.
  3. Cut the second piece of pie crust into ten 1″ stripes and weave into a lattice. You can also just simply place the pie crust on top and cut a few slits for ventilation. Press and crimp the edges.
  4. Bake for 1 hour or until the crust is golden and filling is bubbling. Use a pie crust shield if needed to prevent the edges from overbrowning. Let cool for 1 hour before serving.

Notes

*Ripe, yet firm Bartlett or Anjou pears are best.
