I made Pear Pie yesterday. The world's Greatest Pie ever. I made 2 "regular" pies and 2 GF pies.
1 8- or 9-inch single pie crust, uncooked
6-7 medium pears, peeled, cored, & quartered
1 1/2 T lemon juice
1/2 C sugar
2 -3 Tbsp flour (for GF use 2 T cornstarch)
1 tsp lemon peel (optional)
Combine pears and lemon juice in a medium bowl. In a small bowl combine sugar, flour and peel. Pour into pears and combine. Stir carefully. Pour into prepared pie crust
2/3 C flour (rice or wheat)
2/3 C white or brown sugar
1/2 t cinnamon
1/4 t mace (optional)
(For GF add 1/4 - 1/5 tsp xanthan gum)
1/3 C butter/margarine
Combine all ingredients but the butter. Cut butter into the mixture. Sprinkle on top of Filling.
Bake at 425-degrees for 10 minutes then on 375 degrees for 40-50 minutes.
