Pear Pie

They say a picture is worth a thousand words.

That being said, here are your pictures. :-)

Imagine still-warm pear pie, having recently been removed from the oven, topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!

Didn't someone once say something like, "This isn't Iowa - it's heaven!" ;-)

Have a great day.

omg, that looks delicious. I've never had pear pie?!! I definitely think I've been missing out! btw, we tried your german apple cake recipe and it was very good. Thanks!

Substitute peaches for me instead of pears, and I'm knocking on your door.

My mouth is watering.

Was it as delicious as it looked? It looks wonderful! Gail

Now I'm hungry !

Shady Gardener said...

Hi everyone, Yes! It was delicious! My husband and I each had a piece last night, and I shared it with friends today. :-)

I'll be making another! Just make it like an apple pie, excepting use 1/2 tsp. of ground mace instead of cinnamon.

Hi Shady, I have never had pear pie either, but will have to remedy that. Your baking skills are a gift!

Gorgeous photos - can almost breathe in the fragrance and taste that flaky crust from the east coast!

However, I must take you to task. You've done it again... more pure torture for chunky gardeners who have no business eating, or contemplating eating, pie (me!).

I now feel so guilt-ridden from this viewing, that I'm leaving to rake leaves at Mom's house... OK, I was going anyway, but exercise is a better alternative for this pie-lovin' gardener. ~ Deb

Hi Deb! You gave me quite the chuckle!! The good thing about this pie is there's only 1/2 cup sugar in the whole thing! :-)

Shady Gardener said...

Hi Frances, How did you sneak in there with a comment that I didn't see?? Baked good are a gift to give and to receive! :-)

Hi Shady,
That sure is a lovely pie, and quite artfully done with the crust. I never bake pies (though Fernymoss does at Thanksgiving) because I so rarely eat pie ... just never had a taste for it for some reason. I do have a slice or two of pumpkin pie each year and maybe some pecan pie, but the rest of the year, the thought never enters my mind!

Next time I make French Baguettes, I'll have to take some pictures and post my super secret recipe too, hehe. :-)

Shady Gardener said...

IVG, I like to make fresh pies when I can. We've had such a bountiful crop of apples and pears (thanks to friends) that I've been baking many different items.

Hmmm French Baguettes...now, that would be a Great recipe to have!!! Whenever you wish to share... :-)

Iowa Victory Gardener said...

Hi Shady,
Next time I make a batch of vegetable potage and baguettes, I'll take pictures and post them! It's one of our winter staples, and a pretty economical dish that lasts us several days.... Good for you, too!

joey said...

Yum ... where is my fork! I adore pears ... thank you for sharing.

Shady Gardener said...

Hi Joey, It really was good. In fact, I made a pear pie with a crumble topping that everyone said was good. (I shared it at Church last night and didn't get a piece!) ha.

Kylee said...

That looks really good! Romie wants me to make some pear pies with our neighbor's pears and I'm just not a pie baker. But I might have to try, after seeing yours!

Shady Gardener said...

It turned out very good, Kylee. They are a little more "watery" than apple. But... hey, a warm slice of pie with vanilla ice cream?! ;-)
