Why I Love This Recipe

This recipe I like to call my "pie without a pan", it is simple to make and so tasty. Great time of year for pears! This dessert is great served with vanilla ice cream.

Ingredients You'll Need

Pastry for single-crust pie (9 inches)
3/4 cups plus 2 teaspoons sugar, divided
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
4 cups sliced peeled fresh pears (about 4 medium)
3 tablespoons sliced almonds


Roll out pastry into a 10-in. circle. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. In a bowl, combine 3/4 cup sugar and flour.; add pears and toss to coat. Place in center of pastry; spread to within 2 in. of edges. Fold edges up and slightly crimp.

Sprinkle with remaining sugar. Bake at 450 F. for 15 minutes or until pears are tender. Sprinkle with almonds; bake 5minutes longer. Cool slightly before cutting into wedges. Yield: 8 servings.
