A Pre made short crust pie shell is fine or you can make one homemade. I buy pre-made at the resturant supply store.
Lay out a cool pie shell onto pie pan, shape onto bottom and sides of pan. Perforate bottom with fork in a few places. Place in refrigerator while peeling and preparing pears.
- 4 pears
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- pats of butter
Peel, half, and core pears.
Place halves, cut side down, in a circular pattern on top of pie shell .
Sprinkle with sugar.
Score each pear and top each pear with a pat of butter.
Place in a hot oven and
Bake for 30 minutes or until pear juice is evaporated and pears start to brown.
While fruit is baking
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- ½ teaspoon vanilla
- pinch salt
- 1 egg
- 3 tablespoons almond powder

Pour custard mixture around the hot baked fruit and continue baking for 25 more minutes.
