You don't need to feel any guilt about eating this "pie" either, because there is no crust! It's just fruit and an easy batter you make in the blender (only 1/3 C flour and sugar in the whole recipe!). And it's not overly sweet either, which is something I like. It couldn't be easier to make - truly a no brainer. I should've used my OXO mandoline to slice the pears.....but I just did it the old fashioned way.
3 Comice or Bartlett pears
1/4 C melted unsalted butter
1/3 C sugar
1/3 C flour
2 tsp vanilla
3 large eggs
3/4 C milk
1/4 tsp salt
confectioners sugar for dusting
1. Preheat oven to 350. Butter a 9 inch pie dish.
2. Peel, halve and core the pears. Slice into 1/4 inch thick slices, lengthwise. Arrange slices, overlapping slightly, in dish.
|This is the best way I've found to core apples and pears - with a melon baller. SO easy.|
3. In a blender, process the melted butter, sugar, flour, vanilla, eggs, milk and salt until smooth.
4. Pour batter over pears.
|Ready for the oven....|
Bake until golden and firm to the touch, about 40-45 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature, dusted with powdered sugar (I took my picture before this step!).
