This is so yummy! I love love love this dessert and it is very easy to make and a little unexpected.
1 Pie Crust, I buy mine
3/4 C. Sugar
1 Cube + 1T. Butter, room temperature
2 t. Almond Extract
1 sm. pkg. slivered almonds, toasted
1 Can Halved Pears
- Pre-heat oven to 375
- Cream together sugar, butter, flour
- Beat in eggs, almond extract, and almonds
- Pour into pie shell
- Slice each pear half into thin slices, keeping it joined together at the top so it fans out at the bottom. Lay four pear halves on top of pie. I put them so the corners of each pear meet in the center of the pie.
- Bake uncovered for 50 minutes until pie is set up. (when you shake it the center doesn't jiggle)
