Fruity pear pie

My eldest son had his birthday two weeks ago but we haven’t had the opportunity to celebrate him properly until today. So for this occation I made him a delicious, fruity pear pie served with whipped cream and a cup of coffee.

Pie crust

  • 125 gr butter
  • 3 dl flour
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 eggyolk

Filling

  • 100 gram butter
  • 1 dl granulated sugar
  • 1 00 gram almonds
  • 4 bitter almonds
  • 1 tbsp plain flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 large can (800 gram) of preserved pears
  • Whipped cream for serving

Preheat oven to 200 degrees

  1. Mix the ingredients for the pie crust and press it into a pie dish.
  2. Blanch and grind the sweet and bitter almonds.
  3. Stir butter and sugar until fluffy and add the almonds and flour.
  4. Whisk the eggs and add to the batter.
  5. Let the pear halves drain thoroughly and cut them in thin slices across the short side
  6. Keep the sliced pear halves together and place them gently in the pie shell.
  7. Gently press the pear halves so the slices slightly separate and look like tiles on a roof.
  8. If  there are pears left over cut these into smaller pieces and placed in the gap between the halves.
  9. Spread the batter over the pears and bake the pie for about 30-35 minutes or until batter is set.
  10. Cover with waxed paper if the cake is getting dark.

Serve the pie chilled with whipped cream.
